By Ned Hamson on April 19, 1998
Format: Paperback
In this slim but powerful book, Jean captures one of the mightiest metaphors from North American history to help us figure out how to create a new vision for our nation and the world as we dash for the year 2000. If nothing else, it will assist you in reframing the existing whitewater world about us into one with hopeful patterns of peace and prosperity. Ned Hamson

This book is a primer on how to grow spiritually, physically and mentally based upon the teachings of a great Native American who was in touch with the Creator. It includes common themes held in all religions, for all who seek a spiritual path toward personal renewal and God-consciousness. It requires the reader to do the work, acting only as a guide. It has much in common with the 12-step programs of today.

I was surprised by the influence of Christianity. I do appreciate Christianity on its own merit. However, I was hoping for more authentic American Indian tradition prior to the influence of the Westerners. Unfortunately, I could not give it away to friends that too are truth seekers of the Native American sacred practices.

As in other works by Jean Houston, she has taken social legends - this time to story of Native Americans - and provided a path for modern folks to follow. She not only tells the story, but provides practical applications for this wisdom for our lives today. We can all be peacemakers and we definitely need more in our world.
