From the Foreword- "This book really needs no introduction. It is a book of beauty that is sadness; of courage that inspires; of duplicity that makes a white man's conscience squirm. It is a book of loneliness, the awful loneliness that fills the world from earth to sky, when a soul has lost its gods, its faith, its bearings."
