Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This collection of stories and essays offers welcome relief from the flood of pseudo-Indian spirituality cluttering libraries and bookstores. Introduced by poet/editor Joseph Bruchac, a leader in the study and dissemination of authentic texts, this work includes stories (admirably genuine) from the Iroquois, Abenaki, Cherokee, Pueblo, Winnebago, Salish, Coos-Coquille, Blackfoot, Pawnee, Lakota, Navajo, and Cheyenne and essays by Joseph Epes Brown, Sam Gill, Barre Toelken, Barbara Tedlock, Emory Sekaquaptewa, and Vine Deloria, among others--names that mean something. Recommended for its impeccable scholarship and valuable insights: "It may be that American Indians contain the last best hope for spiritual renewal in a world dominated by material considerations."-- Rhoda Carroll, Vermont Coll., Montpelier

Format: Paperback
i didn't like this book that much. i guess i didnt become part of it eough but if you wanna know about sacred dimensions in native american life you can read black elk speaks or something, it's better, like reading soul on ice instead of some dude writing about eldridge cleaver, it's not that complicated there's little need for a metaphor
