Soon he became involved in the Shoshone struggle for civil rights, including their efforts to protect and heal their traditional lands. He also became a leader of the international antinuclear movement. ""The Nature Way"" is a rich compendium of Corbin Harney's experience and wisdom. His voice is one of the clearest expressions yet of the values, concerns, and spirituality of contemporary Native America.
