Summary "Corbin Harney was born into a Shoshone family on the Nevada-Idaho border. His grandparents raised him in the traditional ways of their people, teaching him the ancient spiritual beliefs that sustained their culture. The Nature Way is a rich compendium of Corbin Harney's experience and wisdom. His account of his life incorporates the tragic history of Native Americans in the Great Basin after the arrival of Euro-Americans, his realization of his own identity as a Native American, and his long study of his people's traditions and spiritual practices."
"His summary of the Shoshone and Paiute use of indigenous plants for food and healing highlights their understanding that the Earth and her denizens and products must be respected and protected in order to preserve the connection that all creatures have with sacred Mother Earth. Finally, his account of his role as an antinuclear activist expands on his awareness of the human responsibility to protect the Earth, especially from the extreme danger posed by nuclear technology and nuclear weapons of mass destruction."--Jacket
