PRLog - Sep. 25, 2012 - Accustomed to the homogenous communities of Iowa, a fifth-grader relocates with his family to the Rosebud Indian Reservation in 1957, only to find a different world. Living in the poorest region of South Dakota prods him and his friends to use their imagination and curiosity. They explore, build, hunt, and become interested in girls. This is their story of Survival on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.
Survival on the Rosebud Indian Reservation
The 10-year-old boy learns resourcefulness and discovers lessons that will shape his life and future career as a teacher. The Lakota people’s history, culture and education stimulated the author’s self-discovery as he looks back on his childhood adventures.
It’s easy for kids to poke fun at food and traditions from other cultures. But as the author remembers it, “The more experiences I had with the Lakota culture, the more respect I developed for it. I reached a point at which it was difficult to view the Lakota objectively. I’d become part of them.”

About the Author: About the Author: David Clifford Grieser is an educator in Des Moines, Iowa. “Michelangelo once described his sculpting as freeing his subjects from the marble in which they were encased. I felt the same way as I wrote: My subjects and events were encased in a past, and I wanted to eliminate the extraneous surroundings, so that readers could see them. The obstacles, then, were to extract no more or less than what I needed to be accurate. Completing the book was a testament to the Lakota people to whom I owed so much.”
