Author Kent Nerburn's book "Neither Wolf Nor Dog" became known inside Hollywood as the great unmade Native American novel. Producers tried, and failed, to bring the book to the screen for more than 20 years. Scottish Filmmaker Steven Lewis Simpson managed the project with an 18 day shoot with a 95-year-old star and fan support from Kickstarter. "Neither Wolf Nor Dog," the film, returns to South Dakota and opens at the Brookings Cinema 8 in Brookings and the Logan Luxury 5 Theater in Mitchell. Joining us is Steven Lewis Simpson.
