Publisher Comments:

"I do not expect you to trade your set of beliefs for mine. I do not have all the answers. But in my tradition, we ask more questions and we share our honest observations. Hopefully, once you have completed reading this book, you will know what I know, and I am fairly sure you will see how a spiritual path that honors Nature is the only way out of the serious crises facing our planet. I call that path Nature's Way."

Sioux tribal leader Ed McGaa, known as Eagle Man, sounds a call for spiritual awakening. He explains how we can create a new global culture based not on dominance over nature for economic and political gain, but on values that endure for all times and all people. Nature's Way explores Native American belief systems, oppression of Native Americans by the dominant society, the desacralization of Nature, and the complicity of institutional religion.

Beginning with the ways of the Lakota Sioux and branching outward, Sioux tribal leader Ed McGaa, known as Eagle Man, shows the error of using animals and the natural world as a whole for economic and political gain. He then offers everyday lessons and values gleaned from Nature that endure for all times and people.

Nature's Way explores Native American belief systems, oppression of Native Americans by the dominant society, the desacralisation of Nature, and the complicity of institutional religion.

Taking on religion, politics, and culture, McGaa provides a template for readers — a path designed by Nature that anyone can follow. Using the lessons of the eagle, bear, lion, wolf, orca, owl, tiger, buffalo, rat, deer, and even the cottonwood tree, Nature's Way teaches all of us how we can overcome religious intolerance, treat women and men equally, preserve our environment, and live in peace.

Review:

"McGaa's idealism is refreshing." Publihsers Weekly

Review:

"McGaa tells stories from his own life, describing his experience with ceremonies that are crucial to understanding certain forms of Native American spiritual teachings....[T]he stories are interesting and the hook of using the characteristics of specific animals to anchor each discussion works." Library Journal

Review:

"Refreshingly honest, McGaa's impassioned plea for environmental awareness is impossible to ignore." Booklist

About the Author

Ed McGaa, J.D., was born on the Oglala Sioux reservation in South Dakota and is a registered tribal member. He served in Korea as a Marine Corporal before earning an undergraduate degree at St. John's University in Minnesota. He then rejoined the Marine Corps to become a Phantom F4 fighter pilot in Vietnam, where he flew in more than a hundred combat missions. Upon his return McGaa danced in six annual Sioux Sun Dances.
