One stormy August night, a lightning bolt struck Mark Warren?s tin-roofed farmhouse and burned?everything to the ground. Even his metal tools melted. Friends loaned him a tent, but after just a month it began to break down?which Warren vowed not to do. Instead, he decided to follow a childhood dream and live in a tipi. Excitement stirred in his chest, and so began a two-year adventure of struggle, contemplation, and achievement that brought him even closer to the land that he called home.?More than just the story of one man, Two Winters in a Tipi gives the history and use of the native structure, providing valuable advice, through Warren?s trial and error, about the confrontations that march toward a tipi dweller. It shows, without thumping the drum of environmental doom, how you can go back to the land for two days or two years. The wild plants that Natives harvested for food and?medicine still grow nearby. The foods still nourish; the medicines still heal. As Warren beautifully reveals, the wild places of the past still exist in our everyday lives, and living that wilderness is still a possibility. It?s as close as the river running through your city, the woods in your neighborhood, or even the edges of your own backyard.
