This is a big book. It's big in volume, concept, scope, and historical accuracy. The author also illustrated her own book with lovely ink drawings.

The author takes us back in history, to the mid 1800's, when the North American continent was being further invaded by bloodthirsty, greedy, ignorant invaders from Europe. These people disregarded the fact that there were many advanced civilizations already living there, and proceded to ravage the land and natives. This book is also very much about ho

One Is The Sun is informative as well as enjoyable. The book is rich, colorful, and drew me into a strong sense of place – nature, and what it offers.

One Is The Sun also captures a place in time, the transition from one era to another. Currency exists, but isn’t yet a “household item” for Indian communities living off the land; the trading of goods is still their practice. Gold rushes are starting, and bring violence. The contrast between the lives of Indians living off the land to those of peop

Probably historically somewhat correct, though presented as a story of a white woman seeking the knowledge from a Native woman healer. There are references to the men and situations that conspired to change what ancients believed - the worship of the Earth and what the Earth could offer if treated well. This is a book about healing and living a life of thought and caring, treating others right and learning.
If there were only one book on the planet this book would be enough!!!

Patrician Nell Warren, Wisdom Naked, is my SiStar!!! She is the Portal of knowledge. Teaching journeys for womyns. Re-read and re-read, pass on through generations.

I enjoyed this book as a glimpse into paths of teaching fundamental truths and defending personal traditions. It was a fun fictional read that captures the skunk ignorance of an earlier period. I have been working on my personal 5 points to teach my children.

I read this book over and over and I never get sick of the story. I read quickly so I tend to forget details, so every time I pick it up I find things that I forgot happened. It's in my top 10 favorites.

Listened to it on CD - very good story, tended to be a bit long winded and preachy but I enjoyed it.
