From Library Journal:

In Neither Wolf nor Dog, Nerburn recounted a trip he undertook with a Lakota elder named Dan. The narrative was primarily a conversation between the two men, who exchanged their perspectives on the relationship between Native Americans and whites in the 20th century. Throughout, it was clear that there was a cultural barrier separating the men, and by extension their ethnic groups, that would always interfere with their ability to understand each other fully. This new work continues Dan's story, although he is not its primary focus. Instead, Nerburn relates his search for Dan's sister, Yellowbird, who was sent to a boarding school when she was a child and was never heard from again. Parts of the book are fictionalized to maintain the privacy of Dan and his family. VERDICT Nerburn's fans may want to read this work to continue Dan's story. In the end, however, the small amount of new information included would have worked just as well as one good additional chapter in a new edition of Neither Wolf nor Dog.-John Burch, Campbellsville Univ.
