D. M. Dooling was founder and editorial director of Parabola magazine and president of the Society for the Study of Myth and Tradition. Paul Jordan-Smith served as a senior editor of Parabola, with responsibility for the "Epicycles," retellings of traditional stories, myths, and legend.From Library Journal:
This collection of stories and essays offers welcome relief from the flood of pseudo-Indian spirituality cluttering libraries and bookstores. Introduced by poet/editor Joseph Bruchac, a leader in the study and dissemination of authentic texts, this work includes stories (admirably genuine) from the Iroquois, Abenaki, Cherokee, Pueblo, Winnebago, Salish, Coos-Coquille, Blackfoot, Pawnee, Lakota, Navajo, and Cheyenne and essays by Joseph Epes Brown, Sam Gill, Barre Toelken, Barbara Tedlock, Emory Sekaquaptewa, and Vine Deloria, among others--names that mean something. Recommended for its impeccable scholarship and valuable insights: "It may be that American Indians contain the last best hope for spiritual renewal in a world dominated by material considerations."-- Rhoda Carroll, Vermont Coll., Montpelier
