Naturegraph Company, Healdsburg, California; (1962), Third Printing. Octavo, 94 pp. + [2, verso card covers]; bibliography; index. Illustrated: line drawings and two fold-out pages with full-colour images on both sides. Previous owner name in fine, small pen on title page, Else Fine. Out of print thus. (POD reprints do not include the fold-out art.) The illustrators represent four native nations: Navajo, Osage, Kiowa and Paiute.
Vinson Brown, a biologist by profession, published widely, with books on comparative religion, native spiritual teachings, and nature and natural history, especially of the Pacific Coast. Willoya was an Eskimo from Alaska, whose dream forms part of this work.
A short, fascinating attempt to show the commonalities of native prophecy and the imagery of the Sioux Pipe Bag with those from Buddhist, Hindu, Biblical, and Aztec sources, and their merging in the ‘New Faith’. The bibliography cites sources that are equally wide-ranging: The Qur’an, biographies of various Native Elders and Chiefs, studies of dreams, the Ghost Dance, Messianic movements and Baha’i commentary.
