How is the thinking of Native Americans different from Western ways of thought? Calvin Luther Martin confronts this centuries-old question while drawing on his experiences living with Navajos and the Yup'ik Eskimos of Alaska. Through their stories and myths and their powerful philosophy of being, Martin brings us face to face with the Native American "way of the human being".
