The Lakota Way of Strength and Courage
Lessons in Resilience from the Bow and Arrow

In Lakota tradition, the bow and arrow were more than tools for hunting or battle. The bow’s resilience and flexibility, the arrow’s grace and power, the archer’s focus and patience–in these, we find the essential qualities for living a life of strength, purpose, and simplicity. In The Lakota Way of Strength and Courage, Joseph M. Marshall builds upon the central metaphor of the bow and arrow to provide a treasury of insights, stories, and irreplaceable wisdom. With elegant and captivating writings, this master storyteller illuminates timeless lessons on:

•Transformation–how we can preserve what is fundamental even as our external circumstances change

•Simplicity–the story of grandmother Grass Braid, who understood that “the more you know, the less you need to carry”

•Strength and Resiliency–what the history and lore of the Lakota can teach us about growing through adversity

•Purpose–how the world unveils our purpose to us, as revealed in story of the Keeper of the Winter Count

Once, the Lakota people relied on the ash bow and the willow arrow to provide food and sustenance. Today, these simple tools can offer us something even more precious: a way to nourish our souls with spiritual wisdom. Joseph M. Marshall offers a book that is at once profound, honest, and rich with meaning as he reveals The Lakota Way of Strength and Courage.
