Chief Joseph was a smart, perceptive, strong leader who met an arrogant, greed infested foe. Nerburn writes a sad story that should be read. 4.5 stars

Moving, disturbing, uncomfortable read.

It is increasingly difficult to grow up male in America. There are no rights of passage; fathers are at a loss for words when discussing what it means to be a man. Television and films offer us grotesque or outdated images. The male child grows up uncertain who he is, uncertain who he should be. The author has responded to this with an eloquant collection of reflections he wrote for his son, which have a timeless message for all of us.
