To find an answer to a problem, Bear Heart taught to face east and think about the problem, saying: “Grandfather Sun, you come each day to dispel the darkness. In that same way I ask you to shed your light so that I may see where to take the next step.”

I have never highlighted so much in a book since my student days. Nor have I I talked so much about a book – I am sure my family by now feel…
