this book provides great insight into the Cherokee way of thinking. I recommend it to all of Native American background, most particularly to those with the Cherokee Nation in their family history.

Meditations with the Cherokee: Prayers, Songs, and Stories of Healing and Harmony by J.T. Garrett is a wonderful look at the "Old Ways" of the Cherokee. Many people who read this book might consider some of the concepts 'new age' but as the author states, "...my teachers called it Old Wisdom." This book has some traditional stories and a few meditations to help us reconnect with Mother Earth. We are also taught about some of the Cherokee ceremonies and the seven directions. We are shown the sacredness of the number seven. I really enjoyed how the author showed us the sacredness of tobacco as it is in line with what I have been taught. I could feel the wisdom of the ancestors in the beautiful writing. I would defiantly recommend this book to those interested in reconnecting with nature and learning the old ways. Overall, this book was wonderful. I acknowledge that I received this book free of charge from Bear & Company publishing in exchange for my honest and unbiased review of the book.

Dr. Garrett's work provided my initial exposure to Cherokee mysticism. Each subject built upon the one before, and each was illustrated with personal life experiences. I finished anxious for another read. Well done!
