** spoiler alert ** Just beginning, very excited.
About a third of the way through, totally captivating.
I just finished and I most cedrtainly enjoyed this book. The storytelling is incredible and the Teachings are stories i look forward to sharing with my children someday.

One thing that impressed me throughout this book was the discussion and digestion of experiences and issues, rites of passage, and confusing subjects we still encounter today, and at times, with much less wisdom. For example: the account of Night Bear engaging in a sexual relationship with his mother confused me and completely interrupted my perception of the story as a whole. My immediate reaction to this part was to drop the book on the floor and moan in disgust, which caught my husband's attention and prompted him to ask, "What is the matter with you?"

As the context of the story and the book as a whole suggest, the Teachings can be difficult, but there is wisdom to be found in every experience and in the experiences of others.
