The Quest: A Lakota Legend
Set in the early history of our native North Americans, this fictional adventure presents a complex view of the society in which White Wolf and Flaming Eagle must constantly strive to be worthy for their people beyond their roles as warriors and providers. The wise old Wicasa is the tribe's spiritual connection with the Grand Father. Being shaman, he must prepare the way for his successor and choose him through the ancient rituals expected to produce a leader of his esteem. Although plagued by the emotions of the unknown, the old man strives to maintain balance with his beloved Nature while honoring the traditions passed down through the ages. Meticulous in his responsibilities to the tribe, White Wolf must choose his successor based on the achievements and character displayed by his young students as they strive for manhood. Always guided by visions from the Great Spirit, he reaffirms his faith that the Grand Father will continue to guide the spirit in his own time and will reveal the new Wicasa. Meanwhile, he and those who contend must deal with the ever-present terrorism of the savages, taking time to ponder life's mysteries and the foreboding specter of the future invaders.
