Book Short Summary:

In the madness of L.A., Zen Moses is a risk-taking P.I. who has already fought for her life and her sanity-so what's wrong with doing a little favor for a friend? The friend is Jim Gray, a trusted attorney, who needs her to find a missing dog. But this simple case leads Zen to a dead man with no face, the trail of a vanished dealmaker, and the hospital room where Gray is fighting for his life. Suddenly the suspect in a murder-and an unwitting participant in a woman's violent unraveling-Zen finds herself in a tight spot. And it may be too late when she finally uncovers the truth: that in the city of angels, she's been handpicked by some very powerful people-for a long hard fall down to hell...

Book Short Summary:

In All My Relatives David C. Posthumus offers the first revisionist history of the Lakotas’ religion and culture in a generation. He applies key insights from what has been called the “ontological turn,” particularly the dual notions of interiority/soul/spirit and physicality/body and an extended notion of personhood, as proposed by A. Irving Hallowell and Philippe Descola, which includes humans as well as nonhumans. All My Relatives demonstrates how a new animist framework can connect and articulate otherwise disparate and obscure elements of Lakota ethnography. Stripped of its problematic nineteenth-century social evolutionary elements and viewed as an ontological or spiritual alternative, this reevaluated concept of animism for a twenty-first-century sensibility provides a compelling lens through which traditional Lakota mythology, dreams and visions, and ceremony may be productively analyzed and more fully understood. Posthumus explores how Lakota animist beliefs permeate the understanding of the real world in relation to such phenomena as the personhood of rocks, ghosts or spirits of deceased humans and animals, meteorological phenomena, familiar spirits or spirit helpers, and medicine bundles. All My Relatives offers new insights into traditional Lakota culture for a deeper and more enduring understanding of indigenous cosmology, ontology, and religion.

Book Short Summary:

Now That God Is Popular Again, What Do People Say About Him? Interest in the nature of the Supreme Being is growing again, especially among people who had turned away from conventional religious approaches. God is "in" again, but what do we know about him? In this remarkable reference work, Constance Victoria Briggs, author of the popular The Encyclopedia of Angels, offers a stimulating and inspiring review of the thoughts of hundreds of scholars, religious authorities, mystics, writers, saints, prophets, philosophers, poets--even celebrities--on the nature of God. "Although we can't question God, we can evaluate the information contained in these sources and draw our own conclusions about who and what God is," she says. "It's my desire to portray God as a multi-faceted spiritual entity whose characteristics have shaped our lives since the dawn of mankind." In a highly accessible A-Z format, Briggs presents hundreds of short informative entries from diverse traditions and beliefs. From Arabot, the Seventh Heaven in Judaic lore, to Thomas Jefferson's beliefs in God, from Brahma, Hinduism's chief deity, to Mulungu, the Supreme Being in some East African beliefs--you'll find it all in this revealing tour through the world's beliefs. Among the riches in The Encyclopedia of God, you'll find a chronicle of the acts of God, past and future; God's relationship with the saints, prophets, and other holy men and women; God's relationship with the angels; the beliefs about God of world religions and ancient cultures; and new age thoughts on God. All entries are meticulously cross-referenced to give you quick access to related topics.

Book Short Summary:

Black Elk of the Sioux has been recognized as one of the truly remarkable men of his time in the matter of religious belief and practice. Shortly before his death in August, 1950, when he was the "keeper of the sacred pipe," he said, "It is my prayer that, through our sacred pipe, and through this book in which I shall explain what our pipe really is, peace may come to those peoples who can understand, and understanding which must be of the heart and not of the head alone. Then they will realize that we Indians know the One true God, and that we pray to Him continually." Black Elk was the only qualified priest of the older Oglala Sioux still living when The Sacred Pipe was written. This is his book: he gave it orally to Joseph Epes Brown during the latter's eight month's residence on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where Black Elk lived. Beginning with the story of White Buffalo Cow Woman's first visit to the Sioux to give them the sacred pip~, Black Elk describes and discusses the details and meanings of the seven rites, which were disclosed, one by one, to the Sioux through visions. He takes the reader through the sun dance, the purification rite, the "keeping of the soul," and other rites, showing how the Sioux have come to terms with God and nature and their fellow men through a rare spirit of sacrifice and determination. The wakan Mysteries of the Siouan peoples have been a subject of interest and study by explorers and scholars from the period of earliest contact between whites and Indians in North America, but Black Elk's account is without doubt the most highly developed on this religion and cosmography. The Sacred Pipe, published as volume thirty-six in the Civilization of the American Indian Series, will be greeted enthusiastically by students of comparative religion, ethnologists, historians, philosophers, and everyone interested in American Indian life.

Essays: the endless multiplicity of windows (not to be found in the non-physical, mystical unity of heaven); the problematic relationship between two species (humans and dogs); proprioception (the unappreciated, vital sensation of dueling with gravity); a childrens book as an example earthly art, even to its media.

Book Short Summary:

This could be the most important book you will read this year. Around the office at Chelsea Green it is referred to as the "pharmaceutical Silent Spring." Well-known author, teacher, lecturer, and herbalist Stephen Harrod Buhner has produced a book that is certain to generate controversy. It consists of three parts: A critique of technological medicine, and especially the dangers to the environment posed by pharmaceuticals and other synthetic substances that people use in connection with health care and personal body care. A new look at Gaia Theory, including an explanation that plants are the original chemistries of Gaia and those phytochemistries are the fundamental communications network for the Earth's ecosystems. Extensive documentation of how plants communicate their healing qualities to humans and other animals. Western culture has obliterated most people's capacity to perceive these messages, but this book also contains valuable information on how we can restore our faculties of perception. The book will affect readers on rational and emotional planes. It is grounded in both a New Age spiritual sensibility and hard science. While some of the author's claims may strike traditional thinkers as outlandish, Buhner presents his arguments with such authority and documentation that the scientific underpinnings, however unconventional, are completely credible. The overall impact is a powerful, eye-opening expos' of the threat that our allopathic Western medical system, in combination with our unquestioning faith in science and technology, poses to the primary life-support systems of the planet. At a time when we are preoccupied with the terrorist attacks and the possibility of biological warfare, perhaps it is time to listen to the planet. This book is essential reading for anyone concerned about the state of the environment, the state of health care, and our cultural sanity.

Book Short Summary:

Reveals the secret language and words of power that enabled the ancient Egyptians to imagine the world into existence • Reveals ancient Egyptian Mystery teachings on immaculate conception, transubstantiation, resurrection, and eternal life • Explores the shamanic journeys that ancient Egyptian priests used to view the unconscious and the afterlife • Provides the essential spiritual tools needed to return to Zep Tepi, the creative source Drawing from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Pyramid texts, the Book of Thoth, and other sacred hieroglyphic writings spanning the three millennia of the Egyptian Mystery Traditions, Normandi Ellis reveals the magical language of creation and words of power that enabled the ancient Egyptians to act as co-creators with the gods. Examining the power of hieroglyphic thinking--how thoughts create reality--and the multiple meanings behind every word of power, the author shows how, with the Neteru, we imagine the world into existence, casting a spell of consciousness over the material world. Uncovering the deep layers of meaning and symbol within the myths of the Egyptian gods and goddesses, Ellis investigates the shamanic journeys that ancient Egyptian priests used to view the unconscious and the afterlife and shares their initiations for immaculate conception, transubstantiation, resurrection, and eternal life—initiations that later became part of the Christian mystery school. Revealing the words of power used by these ancient priests/sorcerers, she explains how to search for the deeper, hidden truths beneath their spells and shows how ancient Egyptian consciousness holds the secret of life itself. Revealing the initiatory secrets of the Osirian Mystery school, Ellis provides the essential teachings and shamanic tools needed to return to Zep Tepi--the creative source--as we face the transitional time of radical change currently at hand.

Book Short Summary:

We began with the generations of my great-great-grandparents, great-grandparents, grandparents, parents and continued on in book 2 with the high school years. Then with the unexpected inheritance, the transfer to Harvard University, and the gauntlets of the seventies and eighties. So what’s next? What’s next? The discovery of Michael’s lost summer of free love in 1967. Let us return to the days of “Make love, not war,” as the hippies chanted this and danced in the parks of San Francisco high on life. Or was it LSD? Matlin and Michael continue their life’s journey with newfound friends and continuing struggles. A brother’s betrayal is heart-wrenching yet forgiving. But a brother’s death is forever life-changing, tragic. Great-grandfather’s gold is discovered right under the twin’s noses while myths and legends are being revealed. Stories will be told that lie in the dusty, recessed fictional section of the library, where movies are made from to stretch our imaginations of those so-called fictitious legends and myths. It will be discovered that what you may have read in books and what you may have seen in movies may be, and in the case of the twins, real. As we say farewell to Michael, a new chapter opens for Matlin’s new beginning. See what a grandson has to say about his grandfather’s beliefs. Tommy Crow begins to introduce us to Matlin and Michael’s friends that they have made over the years. Hear what these friends have to say about the DeMarco brothers and the gaps in Matlin’s and Michael’s stories that are now being filled.

Winner of the Society of American Historians' Francis Parkman Prize Winner of the PEN / Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography Best Biography of 2016, True West magazine Winner of the Western Writers of America 2017 Spur Award, Best Western Biography Finalist, National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography Long-listed for the Cundill History Prize One of the Best Books of 2016, The Boston Globe The epic life story of the Native American holy man who has inspired millions around the world Black Elk, the Native American holy man, is known to millions of readers around the world from his 1932 testimonial Black Elk Speaks. Adapted by the poet John G. Neihardt from a series of interviews with Black Elk and other elders at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, Black Elk Speaks is one of the most widely read and admired works of American Indian literature. Cryptic and deeply personal, it has been read as a spiritual guide, a philosophical manifesto, and a text to be deconstructed—while the historical Black Elk has faded from view. In this sweeping book, Joe Jackson provides the definitive biographical account of a figure whose dramatic life converged with some of the most momentous events in the history of the American West. Born in an era of rising violence between the Sioux, white settlers, and U.S. government troops, Black Elk killed his first man at the Little Bighorn, witnessed the death of his second cousin Crazy Horse, and traveled to Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. Upon his return, he was swept up in the traditionalist Ghost Dance movement and shaken by the Massacre at Wounded Knee. But Black Elk was not a warrior, instead accepting the path of a healer and holy man, motivated by a powerful prophetic vision that he struggled to understand. Although Black Elk embraced Catholicism in his later years, he continued to practice the old ways clandestinely and never refrained from seeking meaning in the visions that both haunted and inspired him. In Black Elk, Jackson has crafted a true American epic, restoring to its subject the richness of his times and gorgeously portraying a life of heroism and tragedy, adaptation and endurance, in an era of permanent crisis on the Great Plains.

Book Short Summary:

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist "grid" and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.

Book Short Summary:

Abigail Gray is a dance instructor whose life tragically ends at the age of thirty-four. She is welcomed to the other side—in a room of pure white—by her guardian angel, a brown book with gold accents, a movie screen, and a remote control. With no recollection of her death, the reel commences as Abbey and her guardian angel, Michael, focus on her last year on Earth. In this year, we follow a journey of newfound love with a man named Jason, as well as a magical friendship with the spiritual intuitive who owns the town’s apothecary shop. Acting as a mentor, this prestidigitator helps Abbey decipher the dreams that have been haunting her sleep since the day she bought the ‘must have’ picture of a dancing couple, an item she found at the local antique shop. He also teaches her the importance of living her life’s truth. As the reel of Abbey’s life plays out, she and Michael embark on this visual journey together, while Michael carves a wooden sculpture and offers her heavenly wisdom about life’s fragility, opportunity, and purpose. “Inspirational ... a perfect blend of spiritual and earthly wisdom woven through a poignant love story.” ~Christine Duminiak, certified grief recovery specialist, author of Heaven Talks to Children “As we follow Abbey’s journey, we cannot help but pause for thought about our own personal beliefs and question the purpose of our own lives. The words of the author display a deep understanding of spiritual philosophy.” ~Alison Baughman, numerologist, author of Get His Number! “In a story playfully sprinkled with fascinating trivia and spiritual wonder, Tracy Glassey explores the power of all the connections and influences we don’t even realize are there, and in the process conveys a great deal of wisdom and practical life lessons.” ~Ralph Marston,

Book Short Summary:

Amidst a world in global turmoil, Victory, a half Native American woman searches for her identity. Victorys mother is a woman of Scottish nobility, an unknowing mistress to Victorys Native American Air Force Captain father, who does not tell her he is married with a wife and children in the States. Cast out from her family in disgrace, Lady Joy McLeod gives birth to Victory and her twin sister in a night of furious rain in a French convent. Victorys twin sister and mother do not survive the birth, plunging Victory into the traumatic world of an orphan, alone and far from both her birth families. Three years pass, in which Victory is an orphan, separated from The People, as her Native American grandfather calls the Cheyenne tribe. In an attempt to salvage his honor and reputation with his people, Victorys father kidnaps her from the convent and returns her to the Indian reservation where her grandfather lives. Victory returns to American, diagnosed as autistic, yet capable of great talents, powers and abilities. Her Native American Grandfather is the only two legged able to reach her, and nurtures and teaches her in the way of his people. Victory begins training as a medicine woman. Yet she finds that spirituality cannot completely explain her world, yet neither can science. Between these two worlds, the spiritual and the material, she must search for an answer, to her life, and to the future of Earth. Her relationship with her father is difficult and painful. Her search for identity as a woman who is half Native American and half wasichu (white) is full of anguish, and includes encounters with racism and rejection from both societies. Victory has experiences in her life that are so horrific that she doubts whether she can go on, but somehow she transcends the pain of the material world through her inner spiritual journeys. Victory is a profile in courage, and her story speaks for the journey of all women. Issues explored within this story are at once both contemporary and searching. Attention is focused on values such as family, love, loyalty, ethnic identification and cultural history. Yet also interwoven in what is right are themes of continual betrayal, hatred, murder and rage. The reader may feel Victory may not be able to rise once more from the ashes of her experiences, but always, true to her name, she has the courage to return to life and walk once more to a goal and a new life. Romance, passion, and sensual experiences are also a part of this vital womans life. Her attitude towards love is much like traditional males, and oftimes contains a double standard. Yet she is not afraid to experience life, even if it means failing and returning again to the world of love. During her lifetime she is married three times but divorce is not within her vocabulary. She experiences the greatest loss of a mother, the loss of children. Yet Victory goes on to celebrate her living children and grandchildren.
