Condition: Near Fine


Minor sticker adhesive on rear wrapper. 2015 Trade Paperback. ix, 117 pp. This book is about hope—hope for the human condition. It is a hope rooted in the wisdom of four great spiritual traditions, Jewish, Christian, Sufi, and Lakota. Despite their different religious and doctrinal backgrounds, on a spiritual level these four traditions demonstate an amazing agreement on human values. And they witness to common human longing for love, compassion, and justice rooted in a mysterious, yet benevolent, transcendent force—God, Yahweh, Allah, or Great Mystery. The author suggests that though thei... View more info

No jacket. 2007 facsimile of original. Top corners bumped. The desire to preserve to future ages the memory of past achievements is a universal human instinct, as witness the clay tablets of old Chaldea, the hieroglyphs of the obelisks, our countless thousands of manuscripts and printed volumes, and the gossiping old story-teller of the village or the backwoods cabin. The reliability of the record depends chiefly on the truthfulness of the recorder and the adequacy of the method employed. In Asia, the cradle of civilization, authentic history goes back thousands of years; in Europe the record ... View more info

But as a result of their frontier experience, many women changed or discarded their earlier opinions. This book is the first account of how and why pioneer women altered their self-images and their views of American Indians. View more info
