About the book:

Gift of Power is a classic story of one man's journey through alienation and struggle to epiphany and redemption. Archie Fire Lame Deer embodies the Native American struggle for survival in a homeland that has become foreign. In vivid first- person narrative, Lame Deer recalls his tumultuous life in a stereotypical Indian world of bottles, feathers, and horses. After enough booze and fighting to kill an average man, he transcends his self-destructive tendencies by reclaiming the spiritual elements of his traditional culture. We learn along with Lame Deer the power and secrets of native medicine and the gifts that they bring to the beholder. This Lakota medicine man is a teacher and a model.
