9780970911230: Ghost Walk: Native American Tales of the Spirit

Ghost Walk explores the realm of the supernatural, but these are not "ghost stories" in the usual sense. They are tales of supernatural beings meeting with native people in the great deserts of the Southwest. They are narrated by actual storytellers, so there is an authenticity here not found in many such collections. The tribal tellers are Apache, Navajo and Havasupai. The stories themselves are life-affirming and suggestive of the mysterious realms beyond our sight but not our vision. The illustrations in soft pencil capture exact locations with a beauty that is typical of Sid Hausman's mature work.

About the Author:

Gerald Hausman wrote Ghost Walk as a sequel to the popular book Turtle Dream. Together, these books have been continuously in print for more than two decades. Gerald's work on Native American and West Indian folklore has earned him high praise from reviewers and more than 35 awards including the Aesop Accolade from American Folklore Society, Children's Division.

Review:

"...stories that are like songs." --New Mexico Library Association

"...lyrical, quietly forceful pieces that effectively portray their characters' links to both the physical and spiritual worlds." --Publishers Weekly

"Hausman honors Native American philosophy and spirituality even as he reveals it." --Booklist
