Publisher's Synopsis
In this beautifully illustrated "how-to why-to" book, Mails includes instructions for applying Native teachings to contemporary life. His central premise is that each tribe he discusses has triumphed over adversity through "walking the pathways" that led to inner peace, and that each of us can use these pathways to find our own inner peace.

The first edition of Secret Native American Pathways sold more than 200,000 copies and is the book readers most often consult regarding Native American culture and religious ceremonies. Freshly designed, the 2003 edition includes a new introduction, index, and an extensive Native American Resource Guide to tribal headquarters, museums, and annual events that are listed by tribal affiliation.

For more than a century, Native American medicine men have predicted the advent of a new era in which the spiritual practices of their peoples would be revered by the white man and the Native American alike. Thomas E. Mails could be considered a principal figure in helping that prediction come true.


More than 40 years ago, Thomas E. Mails began a personal exploration of the spiritual richness of traditional Native American customs and secret ceremonies. Using his gifts as a talented illustrator and writer, he tirelessly worked to bring the spiritual culture of Native Americans to readers until his death in November 2001.
