Format: Paperback
This book is the center of a very personal story. I read it and found it remarkable in its philosophy, the way it examines Indigenous religions without lending itself to New Age or Plastic Shaman nonsense. Vinson Brown had an accurate and insightful comprehension of the theology of the holy men he lived with, such as Frank Fools Crow and others. At times in his life, Indian holy people would set their own pipes aside at ceremonies when Vinson's was unbundled, in reverent deference to his authenticity. I found myself urgently wanting to know more. Years ago, I did something bizarre--I called the publisher and asked how to speak with Vinson Brown. I was told that he had passed away about a week or so earlier. I was discouraged until they told me that his son-in-law, a wonderful Miq'mak Indian man, was tyhere and would I like to speak with him? That man was Lionel Pinn Little Eagle, and he became one of my dearest friends. I illustrated Lionel's book, Greengrass Pipe Dancers, and Lionel was one of my groomsmen and conducted the sweatlodge ceremony for me before my wedding 11 years ago.

I realize people are unlikely to find these details helpful in a book review, but it's seldom tjhat I am able to review a book in such a way that goes beyond an assessment of its scholarship and content, and remark on the personal impact it's had. Vinson Brown was on to something.

Format: Paperback
Warriors of the Rainbow takes the reader on a wodnerful, deeply spiritual journey of learning and mystery. It touches on a wide varity of topics but is highlighted by some remarkable prophecy from a number of significant relgious leaders. It has obiviously been well-researched by Mr. Brown. This book should be on the shelf of any person who has ever ask themself, "What is this all about and how will it turn out"?

I highly recommend this book.

I read this book many years ago and was impressed with the scope of prophetic visions it covers from the various Native American tribes. This has been a very interesting theme to me. Also, the color art work is extremely well done by Jim Red Corn of the Osage Nation of Oklahoma.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book for those who feel they serve a purpose in life, for those who have answered The Call, and for those who identify with saving the world. As I was born in 1969, I find myself wondering if this is this one of those core books of the Hippie generation? Sharp words in the Appendix regarding Judaism and Jewish participation. We are all God's chosen people. Original printing of this book in 1962. Where is everyone now?
