Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Modern psychology, science, and religion have severed people from their relationship with the earth as a living, sacred place. Further, the interrelationship between the sacred earth and the transcendental experience are not as fully understood in our culture as in other cultures or at earlier times. This book explains the nature of places that have the power to move us into a greater spiritual awareness of the world. There are chapters on categories of sites, varieties of Native American places, and the varieties of spiritual experiences. The in-depth analysis and critique of the American Indian Religious Freedom Act and the history of the Gaia hypothesis make this a worthwhile purchase for libraries serving populations interested in alternative spirituality.-- Gail Wood, Montgomery Coll. Lib., German town, Md.
