3 Andrews, Lynn V. Tree of Dreams A Spirit Woman's Vision of Transition and Change
New York Tarcher 2001 1585421294 / 9781585421299 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. For nearly two decades since the original publication of Medicine Woman (now in its fortieth printing) , Lynn Andrews has interpreted the wisdom of her Native American teachers, offering unique insight to achieve personal growth, spiritual fulfillment, and knowledge of the sacred. After sixteen published books with more than two million copies in print, Andrews is a leading voice in personal development. Now she turns her eye to the changes and transitions each of us must negotiate in daily life. In Tree of Dreams, she invites us to explore not only the inevitable process of aging and death, but also the many "little deaths" that occur in life, such as divorce, the loss of a cherished relationship, the unexpected loss of a job, or sudden illness. We see the powerful, independent women who comprise The Sisterhood of the Shields as they gain strength, wisdom, and respect during transition into "elderhood," and we learn how to apply these lessons to our own lives. With disarming candor, the author shares personal spiritual and metaphysical battles as she comes to understand her own shortcomings and failures, which, over time, become the hallmarks of wisdom and the battle scars of the elders. Tree of Dreams is vintage Andrews. Her core audience and new readers alike will enjoy these timeless teachings for growth, healing, and spiritual connection. ; 8.98 X 6.06 X 1.02 inches; 224 pages

8 Clark, Ella E. Indian Legends from the Northern Rockies
Norman, Oklahoma University of Oklahoma Press 1988 0806120878 / 9780806120874 Softcover Very Good 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. The stories in this unusual collection come from the twelve tribes of Indians that, in historic times, have lived in the present states of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. They include myths, legends, personal narratives, and historical traditions preserved by highly respected storytellers, and reveal much about the lives and beliefs of the early Indians. The sections of the book are arranged to represent Indians of six linguistic groups: Nez Percés; Flatheads, Kalispels (or Pend d'Oreilles) , and Coeur d'Alênes(Skitswish) ; Kutenais; Shoshonis and Bannocks; Arapahoes, Gros Ventres, and Blackfeet; and Crows and Assiniboines. Although attention is focused on Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, the factual introductions to the various sections cover a larger-from the Cascade Range of western Washington and Oregon almost to the Mississippi River. Because the Sioux frequently came into Montana and Wyoming to make war and to hunt buffalo, two of their landscape legends are included. These are the stories which used to be told around winter fires for the entertainment and instruction of the Indian family. The simplicity of style characterizing the narrations is truly reflective of their origins in oral literature. Mythology is related to history in this volume, which belongs in any library or home where instruction is intended to delight. ; The Civilization of the American Indian Series; 8.06 X 5.44 X 1.03 inches; 368 pages

In this liberally illustrated book, rock art authority Campbell Grant examines four aspects of the spectacular canyon: its physical characteristics, its history of human habitation, its explorers and archaeologists, and its countless rock paintings and petroglyphs. Grant surveys 96 sites in the two main canyons and offers an interpretation of the rock art found there. ; B&W Illustrations; 10.10 X 7.20 X 0.90 inches; 290 pages
