Who Cries for Mother Earth is an extraordinary glimpse into Native American tradition, faith, love, family and destiny.
A young Lakota woman discovers her special place in the world and sets out to learn about her people, her place on earth, and how nature and man interact. Through a vision quest filled with extraordinary imagery, dire warnings for Mother Earth, a deep respect for the past and hope for the future, Margaret Hines shares Lakota culture and spirituality in a way that will leave you breathless.
"A sweeping novel about a Lakota woman's transcendent vision of life, nature, and spiritual survival amid ever-threatening forces. It is a gripping and uplifting statement of promise, as registered in Yellow Bird Woman's battle against hopelessness and destitution to save her world. Hines's oft-ethereal prose is focused, dramatic, and beautifully rendered." - Jerome A. Greene, author of American Carnage: Wounded Knee, 1890
"Very good and very accurate." - Chief Reginald Left Hand Bull, Rosebud Sicangu Lakota
