A collection of short stories features such subjects as a Sioux spirit travelling the night sky in search of good dreams, a Sioux elder's hope to return to her prairie home, and a Harvard student's reevaluation of the learning process.

Blackwell North Amer
Roofwalker evokes a world in which spirits and the living commingle and Sioux culture and modern life collide with disarming power, humor, and joy. The characters grapple with potent forces of family, history, and belief - forces that at times dare them to do more to feed their identity, and at times simply paralyze them. Rich with women who do things, this book gives voice to characters who make space for contradictions in their lives with varying success and, by extension, live the "Indian way" to varying degrees.
