Wondrous stories of Changing Woman, First Man and First Woman, Coyote, Great Snake, Gila Monster and others who infuse the rich and complex canvas of the Navajo world view. This book illuminates the traditional oral narratives of the tribe and shows how they work ceremonially as healing ways. Collectively, they also convey the origin story of The People and in addition they provide a moral code for harmonious existence with the natural world. The enlightened state of Navajo consciousness, which they call "walking in beauty" is presented in such a way that all of us can learn to use it and live by it.
