Essential Wisdom for a Life Well Lived - with Three New Chapters Included

At once spiritual and practical,Letters to My Son has been beloved by readers from all walks of life, including single mothers seeking guidance in raising a son, fathers looking to share a voice of clarity about life's most important issues, and young men wanting an intelligent, sensitive, and streetwise companion on the journey toward a worthy manhood. In this twentieth anniversary edition, Kent Nerburn adds to his classic reflections on love, marriage, travel, money and wealth, tragedy and suffering, spirituality, sex, and the true meaning of strength, with new chapters on sexual identity and the difficulty of moving on (from relationships, homes, and stages of life). Unique in its profound simplicity and timeless insight,Letters to My Son is a book to savor and a gift to give to anyone looking for clear and gentle guidance on the big issues in life.
A two-time winner of the Minnesota Book Award,Kent Nerburn is the author of thirteen books on spirituality and Native American themes, includingSimple Truths, Neither Wolf nor Dog, andChief Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Perce (featured on the History Channel). He lives in northern Minnesota.
