I read this book the first time as a good story, I read it the second time for the powerful teachings it contained and each read since has brought new meaning to each lesson. Reading this book was the beginning of a journey into me that not only changed my life, but saved it when my son was killed. The empowerment of our feminine energies is basic to our personal freedom and the growth of our own 'selves'

This clearly is fictitious, to put it kindly. I had seen this book a number of times, and just based on the author's picture, my intuition told me to pass it by. Then someone I trusted recommended it highly. My intuition was correct and my trust in general was misplaced. This book is an offense to any/every American Indian - none of whom I can imagine encouraging a student or disciple to "share" the details of true ceremony and/or ritual. It is a credit to Indian dignity that none have sued this woman for liable. Haven't whites done enough to the American Indian: must we now strip them of their spiritual integrity?

Andrews preys upon those who are searching for answers, by writing a book that dives into a made-up world of 'native' spirituality. If one is familiar with the area she is speaking about in this book, it is clearly false by her descriptions of the weather all by itself. Secondly, many things that she claims her mentors said is clearly incorrect - Katchina, Quetzcoatl, and many other things are not part of Cree. While the writing is immersing, the obvious flaws in her claims jog the reader out of her well-created reverie. This book is not 'autobiographical' it is a work of fiction.
