I really liked this book but after reading the premier annotated edition I kind of wish that I had read the Sixth Grandfather instead, because that is a direct transcription of Black Elk's words, whereas Neihardt's voice and thoughts come through a lot in this one. (E.g., Neihardt portrays Black Elk as thinking negatively of Christianity and white men, but these are added flourishes; Black Elk worked in a Christian church and thought there were a lot of beneficial concepts in Christian teachings.)
