"This is a book about the little people; but it is also a book about elders, the old culture, the Sundance, dreams, the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska, healing, joy, and being Indian. It is the story of Cliff Taylor stumbling into his people's ways and then finding community and home, of him shedding the bindings of trauma and getting his soul back; it is the story of a young Ponca walking with the little people on a journey of cultural recovery/regeneration and remembrance. Part Letter To A Young Native, part Sundancer's memoir, The Memory of Souls is both a back pocket talisman and an old prayer song sung into the night for the future generations." (Cliff Taylor)
