Raised in a home without books, Delphine Red Shirt relied on family and friends as her books and wove their stories into her own. Like her ancestors, she felt a powerful connection to the openness of the Plains.

She participated in coming-of-age ceremonies and learned the special rules for stringing beads together and the messages conveyed by hairstyles. At the same time, Red Shirt became increasingly aware of the distance between her world and that of her ancestors. Ringing with insight and honesty, this memoir gives voice to an emerging generation of Lakota women who attempt to navigate the difficult paths of a bicultural world.
