Overview

Hausman has spent more than 20 years studying, collecting, & narrating Native American (NA) stories. This book collects a lifes research into one exquisite volume that reveals the deeper meanings of the culture of our nations original civilization. More than a simple dictionary, it features stories & poems that strikingly reveal how symbols are integrated into everyday NA life. Also contains 100 photos & drawings created by NAs, which provide a lasting testament of a world that was once ours & that has largely been lost. A beautiful book, fascinating & poetically written. He honors NA philosophy & spirituality even as he reveals it.
