Mary Summer Rain's relationship with the old and wise Indian shaman No-Eyes, introduced in Spirit Song, continues, as she reveals to Mary her compelling visions of the future. From the setting in the simple mountain cabin, No-Eyes takes her on a sometimes frightening journey through time, viewing the upheavals to come through a unique perspective, on timeless paths that few have ever traveled.
Second in a celebrated and best-selling series, which includes Spirit Song, Dreamwalker, Phantoms Afoot, Daybreak, Soul Sounds, Mountains, Meadows, and Moonbeams(Young Spirit), and Whispered Wisdom, Phoenix Rising gives the reader an understanding of the relationship between the Earth Mother and the creatures who inhabit her domain. It's a book that is already a classic for its philosophical insight and the powerful lyricism of the author's portrayal of the beautiful mountains of Colorado. And, as always, the unique relationship between teacher and student is delightfully rendered.

Mary Summer Rain met her teacher ¿No Eyes¿ by what many would call chance. Having wandered in the mountains of Colorado, down long and winding roads, in search or sanity and solitude, Summer Rain parks her truck and begins to walk and meets up with an old blind Indian Woman who announces that she has been waiting for her (Mary) to arrive. Throughout the course of their relationship, No Eyes taught Mary of the ways of the Universe, the Earth and of the Spiritual Realms. Most provocative, perhaps, is the series of prophecies No Eyes gave as to the world it¿s inhabitants and the Earth changes. No Eyes, a teacher and profit of great vision, has touched and changed the world through the teachings she shared with her able student, a writer, Mary Summer Rain.
I read an earlier printing of this book back in the 80's. I am still amazed at how many of No-Eyes' predictions have come to pass. I shiver to think that others will come true, too. Still, it's better to be prepared for what's to come. As the description warns, the book is disturbing. But if you hang on until the end, there is relief. No Eyes' simplistic understanding of 'civilization' makes this book an easier read than the works of Nostradamus.
Worth reading and re-reading. I first read this book back in the late 1980s when it was first published. Although frightened by its dire predictions, I held on until the end. I'm so glad I did. It was the uplifting outcome I'd hoped for. I now re-read this book every five years or so. Each time, I find additional prophesies that have come to pass. No Eyes, in her simplistic language, has foretold the mortgage debacle, the resurfacing of diseases we thought had been eradicated (Ebola) and many other remarkable occupancies. Now, whenever one of those dire prophecies comes to pass, I read the book again, so that I can think beyond the catastrophes to the brighter future also foretold.
