By J. E. Lee on July 5, 2006
Format: Paperback
The life of Nicolas and Helena Roerich has been veiled by various conflicting assessements. Some coming from guru worshiping admirers others from sceptics or jealous opponents. In her book Ruth A Drayer's vivid text is that of an intelligent observer showing the reader a dispassionate canvas yet fully aware of the amazing quality of these two people who are still an inspiration to artists and esoterisits from all over the world. I could not put the book down and would invite anyone not to miss the reading of a very special journey- an adventure of two exceptional souls.

I'm so glad a friend told me about this book. I love the paintings - so clear and fresh; simplicity with depth of meaning.

It is gratifying that the author was able to compile such a detailed record of the Roerich's life, work and travels. I enjoyed traveling in my imagination by way of the diary entries - and to places I would NOT want to endure physically - 17,000 foot mountains, for example.

The entire book stretches my imagination - that Helena received so much direction and information in non-physical ways, all the miracles of perfect timing, the pull of India and how they overcame obstacles to visit and live there.

Truly it reads like a novel for which a movie script will be written - their story is so rich, their lives so full of adventures, and alas, there is also a betrayal - just like the movies. Plus, an index - a librarian's dream!

I recommend this to anyone interested in world history, the search for peace, and the development of spiritual understanding.

I just finished reading "Nicholas & Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists and Peacemakers," and want to express my appreciation for your book. Although I knew how it would end, I was moved to tears when I read of the passing of Nicholas and Helena. I have been a student of the Roerichs for over 30 years and I greatly value the love and consciousness your book embodies. Thanks and blessings to you, Ruth.

Dear Ms. Drayer, your book about the Roerichs is the most fascinating one I've ever read appart from the teachings. Let me tell you, I couldn't even go to sleep and went to work thinking of coming back to continue reading. After I finished it, I started to read it again slowly and translating some little parts for my friends in South America that can't understand English, neither have the money to buy books. I have bought three copies already for my special friends. It's difficult to express all my gratitude for the marvelous work you have done on behalf of humanity.

God bless you,

Dora Ospina

The lives of Nicholas and Helena Roerich as recounted by Ruth Drayer have enlightened my being. Just as the Roerich's used their artistic genius and clear intention to discover inner peace and create a world where the kernel of spiritual peace could live in all humanity, this book demands that one look inward and ask the question, "How can I make a difference in my life?". Helena and Nicholas will touch your heart, stir your dreams and remind you of the power and perseverance of the human spirit.

I've studied the spiritual writings of Helena Roerich, the Agni texts, so I was hoping this book would go into some detail about how the writings came about. I was disappointed. The book is more of a blow-by-blow travelog of the Roerichs' travels through Asia in the early 20th century. Mildly interesting, for sure, but not exactly what I wanted. The reproductions of Nicholas' art work are nice, though.

I love Nicholas Roerich as an artist and made the pilgrimage to the upper west side museum filled with his works. Many of the paintings depict scenes of the Himalayas and Central Asia. This is the story of the epic trip he and his wife and son took across the Himalayan passes and through the Gobi desert. It is an easy read and fun. And I suspect there is much more to this story than is included in this volume, but it's a good place to get the overall picture. For example, the apparent fact that Roerich was largely responsible for the all seeing eye on the back of the dollar bill was missing. He had the idea of creating a new country in Central Asia. It's hard to tell from the book if he was just a dreamer, a real mystic or involved in political plots. But a good read to get the overall story.
