I'm taking this one slowly!
This review covers it well:

I've talked to some people who didn't get into this book, because the narrative is sort of looping and layered, but I'm really enjoying the story and what it is saying about story-telling itself. Kind of a meditation. Plus I didn't know anything about the Cheyenne or the symbolism of the medicine wheel. In a lot of ways it's a Native American version of psychological development, and different than European psychology in that it's incorporated overtly into the culture and daily life (at least until Europeans come and change things). And, it's interesting to have the culture actually be designed to support healthy psychological development and spiritual growth.
