Publisher's Synopsis

His focus on the natural and sacred world of North America's indigenous peoples includes elements of the Sioux ceremonial cycle and portraits of native peoples.


"In his intelligent, unsentimental volume, Erdoes, coeditor of American Indian Myths and Legends, surveys timeless Indian rituals, summarizes the history of the Native American civil rights movement and offers a gallery in words and pictures of landscapes, ceremonies and faces, from flute-players to tribal dancers. Although the color reproductions sometimes approach halcyon extremes, the photographs make clear the power of nature, thus suggesting its shaping of the Native American religious sensibility."      ~Publishers Weekly
