Down Is up for Aaron Eagle: A Mother's Spiritual Journey with Downs Syndrome

by Vicki Noble
 

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``I'd like to share with you what it's like living with Aaron Eagle, a modern boy with the chromosomal abnormality known as Down Syndrome,'' writes Noble, his mother, a shamanic healer, explorer of psychic faculties and author of Motherpeace . Aaron, now eight, was born when she was 37. Noble and her husband, who live in Berkeley, Calif., devoted themselves with enthusiasm and ingenuity to perceiving and nurturing their son's creative essence rather than focusing on his disability. Although Noble delves here into issues such as the radiation which may cause Down Syndrome, amniocentesis and special education, her book is more about the difficulties and rich rewards of rearing Aaron, the ``shaman boy.'' Noble's attempt to communicate the spiritual beauty and worth of such a child will be inspiring for parents who are in search of a paradigm other than the pathological. Photos not seen by PW .
