Book Overview

This volume is a continuation of the autobiography of John G. Neihardt All Is But a Beginning offering a final glimpse into his fascinating life. Covering the years 1901-1908, he weaves a mosaic of personal fulfillment, joy and sorrow, reflecting on the successes and failures he experienced during his mature years.
