Description : Annotation This especially substantial folkish son-of-a-gun stew concocted by J. Frank Dobie and associates is distinguished by a wide variety of materials; there is also an equally great variation in methods of treatment, ranging from the simplest recording of single items, like anecdotes, folk remedies or sayings, through the skilfully retold primitive legend, to the scientific, though quite idiomatic, anthropological report, and to the scholarly analysis of the philosophy of the folk. The theme and hero of the volume, Old Man Coyote, animal and folk character, is enlighteningly discussed in the Aztec meanings of his name, the many nicknames attached to him, his remarkably clever tricks and ability to take care of himself, his pre-eminent place in Indian folklore as a creative power, his ubiquity in Mexican lore, his similarity to such other animal tricksters as Reynard the Fox and Br'er Rabbit. Indian legends are well represented in other contributions while folk customs appear in two vividly contrasted accounts. The spirit of the frontier folk enlivens several articles. Book jacket.

Description : Distills the basic principles used by Native American healers to create miracles. • Explores the power of miracles in both traditional Native American healing and modern scientific medicine. • Cites numerous cases in which people whose conditions were deemed hopeless were miraculously healed. • Enables readers to start their own healing journey through the exploration of purpose, meaning, and acceptance. • By the author of Coyote Medicine. Native American healers expect miracles and prepare in all possible ways for them to occur. In modern medicine, miraculous recoveries are discarded from studies as anomalous cases that will taint the otherwise orderly results. Yet this small group of "miracle" patients has much to teach us about healing and survival. Coyote Healing distills the common elements in miracle cures to help people start their own healing journey. Looking at 100 cases of individuals who experienced miracle cures, Dr. Mehl-Madrona found the same preconditions that Native American healers know are necessary in order for miracles to occur. The author reveals what he learned from both his own practice and the interviews he conducted with survivors about the common features of their path back to wellness. Survivors found purpose and meaning in their life-threatening illness; peaceful acceptance was key to their healing. Coyote Healing also tells of another kind of miracle--finding faith, hope, and serenity even when a cure seems impossible.

Description : In The Voice of the Coyote, J. Frank Dobie melds natural history with tales and lore in articulating the complex and often contentious relationship between coyotes and humans. Based on his own life experiences in Texas and twenty-five years of research, Dobie forges a sympathetic and nuanced picture of the coyote prefiguring later environmental and conservation movements. He recognizes the impact of human action on the coyote while also examining the prominent role of the coyote in the myths and legends of the West.

Description : Die Wise does not offer seven steps for coping with death. It does not suggest ways to make dying easier. It pours no honey to make the medicine go down. Instead, with lyrical prose, deep wisdom, and stories from his two decades of working with dying people and their families, Stephen Jenkinson places death at the center of the page and asks us to behold it in all its painful beauty. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Die Wise is for those who will fail to live forever. Dying well, Jenkinson writes, is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is not a lifestyle option. It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation each person owes their ancestors and their heirs. Die Wise dreams such a dream, and plots such an uprising. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: this work makes our capacity for a village-mindedness, or breaks it.
