Description : "The more elaborate specimens are full-fledged works of art." -- Globe and Mail Christmas List 2012 "A stunning presentation." -- Winnipeg free Press Back in print with a new design. Considered the definitive book on dream catchers, this book is for all readers that want to learn about these important symbols in Native American tradition. It features close-up photographs of dream catchers; covers their history, legends, lore and cultural symbolism; and presents a stunning collection of dream catchers that are at once craft and high art. The text is suitable for a popular audience while also thorough, rigorous and valuable in research. This edition has been redesigned with a new jacket. The exact genesis of dream catchers is unknown and origin stories vary as do beliefs about how they work. One legend has it that a medicine woman made a circle from a willow branch and used sinew to weave a spider-web pattern across the hoop. The circular talisman was hung over the bed of a sick child where it would "catch" bad dreams and protect the child, or it would catch good dreams to bless the child. However it worked, the child would recover by morning. Purchasers of dream catchers might find such a story attached to it. Dream catchers made by artists and artisans vary in their design and decoration, and range from craft to high art. Making dream catchers is a popular project for craft groups; conversely, dream catchers are exhibited at museum and galleries where they can fetch a high price. Each element of a dream catcher carries a meaning and function, and these are discussed in the book. Part 1: Legend and Distribution -- Origins; Algonquian Cultures; Dreaming Part 2: Net Charms -- Power in Lines and Knots; Non-Algonquian Cultures; Dream Catchers Today Part 3: Scale -- Fascination with "Indians"; Marketing; Artists and Manufacturing; The Future. More than 40 color photographs feature contemporary dream catchers and artifacts with captions that identify and comment on the different patterns and their significance. The book features original works by Nick Huard, who creates dream catchers in his studio in Kahnawake near Montreal.
Description : Life in the 21st Century is quite different than it has been in previous eras as contemporary young people/new adults attempt to deal with the complex society they are inheriting. For readers who enjoy the realistic flavor of early Judy Blume books, 'Gathering The Dreamcatchers' companion novels break new ground as one-of-a-kind characters navigate the issues of today including: home -vs- homelessness, safety -vs- abuse, sexuality -vs- love, community -vs- personal sovereignty, civil and legal rights, friendship, family, empowerment...and figuring out how to make the world a better place! This series was born with the first two foundational titles LIVING IN SECRET and THE SKIN OF WATER: DEFENDING THE DREAMCATCHERS as separate books containing independent characters...followed by subsequent novels that carry on from the juncture where some of these characters begin to meet -- ESOTERICA, PARADISE FOUND and LIVING IN LIGHT (so far!) -- in which we follow LIVING IN SECRET's Amelia during her ongoing trials/adventures as she grows from 11 to 13/14 to 16 1/2 to 18 years old, and within which key characters and stories from THE SKIN OF WATER also reappear/develop. Though the series itself spans various combo, trilogy and omnibus editions, now for the first time ever the initial two novels can be savored together under one cover as the perfect introduction for readers new to the series. Who are the "dreamcatchers" you ask? Why they are you...me...and everybody else lucky enough to be alive during these pivotal times!

Description : Jesse Alvarez is tired of being the new kid every time his dad takes a job on another ranch. It doesn’t help that Cade Savage, the boss’s son, is a bully who has everything Jesse wants—money, a permanent home, horses, and most of all, a mother who lives with his family. Then Jesse meets Aaron Little Elk, who lives on the Wind River Reservation, steals scraps of yarn from the art room to make dreamcatchers, and never stops talking about his older brother Reuben. Despite that, they become friends, and when Aaron stops coming to school, Jesse worries—and learns of a secret Aaron has been harboring. As he tries to find out what’s happened to his friend, Jesse must unravel the mystery of Aaron’s dreamcatchers and their connection to the wild paint mustang only Aaron can handle. Part contemporary western, part ghost story, Dreamcatcher is ultimately a novel about friendship, the pain of letting go, and the importance of holding on to what remains behind.
