Pretty-shield, the legendary medicine woman of the Crows, remembered what life was like on the Plains when the buffalo were still plentiful. A powerful healer who was forceful, astute, and compassionate, Pretty-shield experienced many changes as her formerly mobile people were forced to come to terms with reservation life in the late nineteenth century. ø Pretty-shield told her story to Frank Linderman through an interpreter and using sign language. The lives, responsibilities, and aspirations of Crow women are vividly brought to life in these pages as Pretty-shield recounts her life on the Plains of long ago. She speaks of the simple games and dolls of an Indian childhood and the work of the girls and women?setting up the lodges, dressing the skins, picking berries, digging roots, and cooking. Through her eyes we come to understand courtship, marriage, childbirth and the care of babies, medicine-dreams, the care of the sick, and other facets of Crow womanhood. Alma Snell and Becky Matthews provide a new preface to this edition.

Life histories are an excellent means of crosscultural understanding. In detailing the life of a Comanche medicine woman who wanted her methods recorded, Jones demonstrated such an intense interest in her training and experiences as a shaman that Sanapia not only accepted him as a valued biographer but also adopted him as a son. Readers will enjoy this intimate portrait of the last surviving Comanche Eagle doctor, revealed in descriptive accounts of her ritual behavior, her attitude toward the profession, the paraphernalia she employed, and her function in Comanche society.

A man like Johnny Chino …was impossible to forget…although for five long years Bridget Donovan had certainly tried. But when the proud Apache asked for help, Bridget's job as a doctor wouldn't let her say no. Being so close to the man who'd broken her heart would be a trial, and she vowed never to fall for him again. Johnny was certain he'd done the right thing in breaking it off with Bridget. She deserved so much more than someone like him. Yet having her near reminded him of all he'd given up when he'd pushed her away. And those feelings—no matter how much he ignored them—weren't going away. Sometimes, what's meant to be just can't be denied.

Have you ever wondered what the American Continent was like before the Native Americans discovered that Columbus was lost? A time before alcohol, guns and other mechanized New World inventions. The horse came onto the scene with the arrival of the Spanish Explorers in the Sixteenth Century. Before the Natives were introduced to the horse, all travel was by walking. Though many Native tribes were highly sophisticated societies, technology was still very primitive. This story takes the reader to a time of scant historical traces left by a people who believed it was honorable to leave no footprints upon the Mother during one's lifetime. The story itself is an obscure legend that has had reality interwoven with folklore so as to duplicate as closely as possibly the life and times of these people whose culture was wonderfully rich and colorful. This story tells of how the ancient peoples upon the Continent lived before recorded history. What they ate. What they believed in. How they survived. Their politics and social life. My goal is to create a feeling in my readers of having traveled to this interesting and intriguing time and place. To have met the characters in their own environment where they are dealing with their personal concerns and survival.
Lola Young: Medicine Woman is a book in two parts. The first is Lola's life story; an oral history that gives the reader direct access to Lola's strength of character, commitment and wicked sense of humour. The second is a list of plants and their uses compiled by Anna Vitenbergs and Lola for the Wakuthuni Community in the Pilbara. Lola and Anne met at Lola's home in Tom Price over a period of eighteen months to check and expand the plant list and record Lola's story. Each plant, and there are 60 in total, is accompanied by a full colour photograph. The book includes a CD of Lola's songs (passed on to Lola from her ancestors) and recorded by Gumala, at an Aboriginal recording studio in Tom Price.

Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman).

Andrews shows us how to channel our own spiritual and intellectual energy and balance the need for love with the desire for power (Love and Power). She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.
