The vivid lyrical descriptions of Colorado’s mountain seasons create a colorful backdrop for this widely acclaimed story of an old wise woman’s wisdom. On a crisp autumn afternoon, with the aspen wood crackling in her secluded cabin’s fireplace, the visionary known as No-Eyes speaks of fascinating and thought provoking subjects.
The aged elder brings her student, Mary Summer Rain, to new understandings of what Love is. She shares her unique rendition of the Creation Story as it relates to the initial spirits created by the Divine. The old one reminisces about a way of life for her People that is long lost. She reveals her extensive pantry of natural botanicals and talks about their healthful medicinal benefits. And, frequently, she guides her student through an array of seemingly mystical journeys. On one such sojourn the two find themselves in the future where they view the earth from space and, after descending closer, watch in awe while the various geographic regions of the U.S. experience the throes of predicted earth changes.
Throughout the seasons the two women develop a deeply profound respect for one another, a respect that naturally evolves into a heartwarming spiritual bond of endearment. Their days are not only filled with highly philosophical discussions, their times are also lavishly interspersed with laughter, playfulness, and the occasional tears of heart-touching emotion that so exemplifies their unique relationship. In the end, it is this rarified friendship that has enchanted readers the world over and, in turn, made Spirit Song a timeless classic that will be cherished for generations to come.
