In this first volume of The White Buffalo Woman Trilogy, author Heyoka Merrifield celebrates the sacredness of nature and the return of a culture hidden by time. Eyes of Wisdom offers a deeply moving narration of life and ceremony on the plains that is richly interwoven with Native American and other mythic traditions. The author draws inspiration from the legend of White Buffalo Woman, his vision quests, and experiences in the Sun Dance lodge.
