Sinopsis:

The creators of Spirit Walker offer a volume of inspirational poetry, complemented by symbolic paintings, designed to reacquaint readers with the harmony of nature, exemplified by the Pueblo Indians of the Southwest.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up?The title poem of Wood's latest collection announces its theme: "...The shaman's circle is a fiery wheel/ Of opposites necessary for the world to keep on/turning..." The poems celebrate and commemorate sacred moments in life (birth, marriage, death, beginnings and endings) and the people?family, elders, and others?who give meaning to our existence. Opposites are named or implied: the old ways and the new, grief and love, summer and winter, wisdom and folly?from their tension comes the power of the turning wheel. Many selections have the feel of ritual prayer or recitation, or the quieter air of meditation. They are all serious, but not somber; even poems about aging or death focus on the gifts that endure, especially love. Howell's realistic, expressive style will be familiar to fans of Wood's Spirit Walker (1993), Dancing Moons (1995), and Many Winters (1974, all Doubleday). The artist's mystical portraits of Native Americans combine the timeless, mythic, and universal with the particular personality of each individual. In keeping with the wisdom revealed in the text, the subjects' fine wrinkles, white-threaded hair, and grave demeanor suggest that experience is their teacher. Wood's words are rooted in Taos Pueblo, but the pictures incorporate allusions to the Teton and Dakotas as well. This volume is well up to the standards of the collaborators' previous prize-winners.?Patricia (Dooley) Lothrop Green, St. George's School, Newport,
