Overview

The most authoritative anthology of Native American wisdom published in years! Native American peoples share a love and reverence for nature, as well as a belief in both a supreme being and a spirit world that interacts with humanity. This engaging collection contains moving quotations from leading American Indians, including chiefs and medicine men, along with poems, songs, prose, speeches, and stories past and present. Organized alphabetically, the spiritual insights gathered here are grouped by the main Native American Nations, from Apache to Zuni—including the Sioux, Eskimo, Cherokee, and many more.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This volume is not the first broad-based anthology of spiritual writings from the Native American tradition, but it is perhaps the first to acknowledge with such care the differing tribes and nations (Apache, Kiowa, Seneca, and so forth) from which its excerpts come, giving observant readers the sense not only of shared Native American traditions but of differences among tribal beliefs. Highly recommended.
