A Native American Bestiary
Borrow Borrow Borrow

NATIVE AMERICAN / SPIRITUALITY

These powerful poems and meditations, drawn from Native America legends and stories, bring forth sacred animal spirits and remind us of our deep connection to Mother Earth. In the words of a 101-year-old Santo Domingo Pueblo man who first encountered this book on the lips of his grandson: "Tell the poet he hit the true vein—the old ways are still our ways, and they will never die." Praise for "Meditations With Animals " - "In this collection of verse and story, we are brought into the primordial community of the universe, the Earth, and all living things."—(Thomas Berry, from his introduction). Praise for Gerald Hausman's earlier work - "Hausman's work is spare and suggesting, evoking mood through images in the natural world...his work is influenced both in style and tone by Native American songs...strong, clear, elemental poems..."—("Publisher's Weekly"). Praise for Bear & Company's "Meditations With" series - "These quiet presentations of spirituality are remarkable for their immediacy and clarity."—("Publisher's Weekly"). GERALD HAUSMAN has received high acclaim for his numerous works on Native America subjects. His books include: "Meditations with the Navajo", "Turtle Island Alphabet", "Native American Animal Stories", "Ghostwalk", "Prayer to the Great Mystery", "Navajo Nights", and "Eagle Boy". He lives on an island in southwestern Florida.
