  • Rez Ramblings as a 21st Century Injun the book came from a dream. I have been writing since high school and I ended up becoming a writer for my the Oglala Light at Pine Ridge High School. It was fun and I dreamed of becoming a published author but I felt the dream was too large for this Oglala Lakota guy. It was a daunting task because of the old way of publishing. With the Internet things have changed and for the good.

    My hope is since I have published my first book I need to set my goals higher. I am creating my own publishing company because of the way the computer world has changed the way we print and publish books. Now you can buy the book and it will be print to order. No waste because the printing company only prints what is ordered. It is awesome! I hope you can find it in your heart to help me accomplish my goal of helping others in Pine Ridge to write and publish their works.
