Published in 1986, Meditations with Animals was the first bestiary ever compiled from Native Americans showing the guiding roles animals have played in their spiritual history. These stories and poems contain the rites and rituals of a variety of tribes, depicting a world unified by the belief that the animal spirit dwells within each of us.
