Marc’s Picks: THE GIRL WHO SANG TO THE BUFFALO by Kent Nerburn
 
One of the greatest joys of life has to be picking up a book or seeing a movie that immediately grabs you and tells you a great story, immersing you in a new and unfamiliar world filled with characters you come to know and care deeply about.
 
The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo: A Child, an Elder & the Light from an Ancient Sky is one of the finest books I’ve read in many years. From the opening sentence to the last, I was totally enthralled. A book like this is the work of a great soul; Kent Nerburn is a writer whose work will last and be treasured for many generations to come.

We all love a great story. We come to love and cherish the characters in it, and we see the world through new eyes. The book is the third in a great trilogy that began with Neither Wolf nor Dog and continued with The Wolf at Twilight. Each book stands on its own, though, and is complete in itself. It’s not at all necessary to read them in order.

In The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo, a haunting dream that keeps recurring pulls Kent back into the hidden world of Native America, where dreams have meaning, animals are teachers, and the old ones still have powers beyond our understanding.

We get to know the main characters from the earlier books far more deeply: Dan the Elder, Grover the warrior, Jumbo the gentle giant. And, most wonderfully, we meet an amazing new character, a four-year-old girl I guarantee you will fall in love with: Zintkala Zi, or Yellow Bird, also known as Little Zi. She looks and dresses startlingly like Dan’s sister, whose disappearance many decades ago is at the heart of the mystery in The Wolf at Twilight. Little Zi speaks to animals; she sings to the buffalo. Dan says she remembers the old ways, ways that have been nearly forgotten. And yet the white authorities feel she is developmentally disabled and want to take her away and place her in an institution far from the home and the people and animals she loves.

The story will touch your heart and blow your mind. I promise you will love this book. It’s one of my all-time favorites, and I can’t recommend it more highly.

A great book helps us to become far greater, more compassionate people; a great book has power and lasting effects on our lives. That’s why we love the great books and great movies so much. They enrich our lives.
