More About the Author

Lynette Yetter is a Californian of mixed European and Native American ancestry, a graduate student at Reed College, an SGI Buddhist and a permanent resident of Bolivia. Lynette makes music, movies, books and art to inspire you. You can check out her work on lynetteyetter dot com.

The sound of the panpipes called Lynette from California to Bolivia, where she's been a resident since 2002. It felt like coming home. While living her dream of playing panpipes with indigenous Quechua and Aymara friends, chewing the sacred coca leaf and sharing a simpler way of life in Latin America, the harsh realty of globalized U.S.-supported human rights abuses often disrupted that idyllic quest. These experiences inspired her to write the novel "Lucy Plays Panpipes for Peace." Reading this book shines light on indigenous culture in the Andes of Peru and Bolivia in a globalized world and offers hope for the future.

Back in California, after several people in Lynette's extended circle committed suicide over financial worries, she felt compelled to write her second book "72 Money Saving Tips for the 99%." In a cheery upbeat tone she shares tips she learned mainly from indigenous people on how to live more simply and sustainably with our Mother Earth, Pachamama. Most people in the world have been living with a lot less stuff that most folks in the US. And often (of course not always) are happier.

Book Review: Lucy Plays Panpipes for Peace by Lynette Yetter

By Richard Weekley

"Appreciate the sun - it's where life comes from. / Appreciate the night - a time to rest. / Appreciate your mom - without her you wouldn't be here. / Appreciate your Dad - ditto as above. / Appreciate when someone is a jerk - your are learning self-control. / Appreciate the harsh weather - you are learning endurance. / Appreciate not having everything you want - you are learning to value what you do have. /
Appreciate everything - for everything is part of your very life itself."

Lynette Yetter's Lucy Plays Panpipes for Peace is laced with gems of wisdom--simple, straight forward, and direct from the heart. In fact, this novel is like entering a good and trusting heart, a heart that believes that following one's inner intuition leads to the ultimate unfolding of life's essence. Which is not to say that the path is easy, or popular, or that the heart doesn't get broken more than once. Yet, it is not the "heart-breaks" that matter, but how Lucy forges on and seeks a deeper teaching when her expectations and hopes shatter.

It was the noted mythologist, Joseph Campbell, who urged others to "follow your bliss." This is where Lucy begins, a place most of us only intellectually consider. Upon hearing panpipes Lucy, just another California woman, devotes herself to going to where the panpipes are played, meeting and speaking with the players and becoming a piper herself. She equips herself with Spanish, Quechua, pure passion, and a plane ticket to Peru.

How little Lucy knew.

And so it is we readers get the ride of our lives as we are plunged into the unknowns of place and culture. Lucy's bus gets blockaded by angry farmers who refuse to let it pass.

Lynette Yetter's book was a gift, an eye opening view of the world of South American political unrest, changing cultures and the kind of optimism of spirit that gives one hope that change can be effective. Uneven in places, but at times heartbreakingly vivid and sweet.

An open-minded, open-hearted idealist sets out on an adventure to do her part for world peace.
At first, I kept wishing for more exposition, but then I realized this book is not trying to be a standard novel--it's storytelling. From then on, I enjoyed it thoroughly. (Expectations can really get in the way, can't they?)
A good story always makes me wonder--"what would I do in a situation like that?" Lucy demonstrates how a Buddhist might handle some very challenging situations, resulting in win-win resolutions.

I just finished "Lucy" and am impressed. It is so easy to read that quite a few pages go by before I notice I've been reading awhile.The greatest strength of the book is its forthright, straightforward language and purpose. I enjoyed it all, and certainly hope a paper edition goes strongly.
