The continuing journey of Neither Wolf nor Dog as the One Book South Dakota selection for 2019


Here is the latest update from the South Dakota Humanities Commission.  I’ll be criss-crossing that wonderful state during the summer, speaking to groups about Neither Wolf nor Dog.  I’m really excited about this chance for Neither Wolf nor Dog to bring people together in common conversation.

Those of you who don’t know South Dakota are missing one of the most diverse, wonderful states in the country. You should give it a try.  It’s more than some carved heads on a mountain.  A lot more.  Be prepared to be surprised and delighted.

And to those of you in South Dakota, I’ll be seeing you as the year progresses.  Contact the Humanities Commission if you want to arrange a reading or a discussion.

  1. Hi Kent. We very much would like to visit you on your tour of SD this summer. I hope you have a schedule out providing dates and locations. It will be wonderful to see you once again.

  2. I’m so glad to hear from you, Larry. I hope you are doing well. The Humanities Commission and I are working on the schedule, but nothing is set in stone yet. We haven’t even decided which cities/towns/reservations to visit. I’m thinking I’ll do the touring in June. Of course, I’ll be speaking at the book festival in Deadwood in early October, but Vicki will probably be back in the classroom by then. Stay tuned. I’ll be posting times and locations as we get them set. So nice to hear from the sage of Baxter Springs. I treasure our time together.

  3. Do you come north of your border, like Toronto. Would love to hear you —see you. No wall yet!!!

  4. No plans to go in that direction. Would love to, though. You guys should consider building a wall to keep us out, given the way our government is going.

  5. I would love to see a schedule. Your work has put my life on a new trajectory and I would love the chance to shake your hand.

  6. I’ll post it as soon as we determine it. In the meantime, keep an eye to the lower right corner of my website home page. I’ve finally started listing my upcoming events — at least those that are open to public attendance.

  7. Thank you for all you do to bring awareness, Kent! NWND is absolutely awesome and brings forth issues in a personable way. IMO, it should be a literary prerequisite in every high school.
    Congratulations on everything surrounding this brilliant book. ((As an added note, I have “digested” ALL your incredible writings, over and over.))

  8. You are very kind, Michelle. We all do what we can with the gifts we are given. I try to use my works to give a moral basis to the everyday. Sometimes it works better than others. NWND has worked, and it makes me happy when people are moved by it.

  9. Hi Kent,

    I love your all your works, esp. Neither Wolf Nor Dog. It is a trip into my own very lucky opportunity in sharing 3 months volunteering at the Rec and Pre-School Ed Centres in Little Eagle SD in 1992 with the beautiful Lakota people. If you’re coming to the UK please come to Manchester you’re more than welcome to stay with us.

    Kind Regards


  10. My search in religion/spirituality led me to the soul of the indian…which was eye opening…that led me to neither wolf nor dog…which now has many dog eared pages that I simply go back to knowing I’m refreshing some epiphany…simply the best thing I have ever read…answered many questions…and created twice as many new ones…dan was right…..thanx

  11. I try to tell the story in a way that engages hearts as well as minds. Thanks for telling me that I have been at least partially successful in my efforts.
