He reveals memories of his childhood training and initiation, remembrances about his father and grandmother, the sacred story of the origin of plants he uses in his cures, and details about some of the ceremonies. Anthropologist Jordan (University of North Texas) documents the place of Lewis's medicine family in the written record and traces the accounts of Mvskoke religion from the 18th century to the present."" - Book News, Inc.
