"Native America knows something about cultivating resilience and resisting darkness. Choctaw elder and Episcopal priest Steven Charleston offers words of hard-won hope, rooted in daily conversations with the Spirit and steeped in Indigenous wisdom. For all who yearn for hope, "Ladder to the Light" is a book of comfort, truth, and challenge in a time of anguish and fear. Night will not last forever. Together we can climb toward the light." -- back cover
