Shaman's Circle

Nancy Wood, Author, Frank Howell, Illustrator Doubleday Books for Young Readers $22.5 (80p) ISBN 978-0-385-32222-5
From the same team that produced Spirit Walker and Dancing Moons, Shaman's Circle by Nancy Wood, illus. by Frank Howell, takes its inspiration from the lives and cosmology of the Pueblo Indians to meditate upon our connections to nature. A typically wordy and didactic stanza reads, ""Daylight is nighttime's other face, the one that preceded/ creation and formed a universal vision long before/ human eyes recognized the lessons of leaves and lions."" Mystical paintings-e.g., of heads floating in cosmic space-complete the New Age-ish appeal.
