Often on our shelves, but if we're temporarily out, we can get back in!


Drumming & Dreaming Algonquian Tales of the Eastern Woodland Native Americans - primarily the Nipmuc Tribe.Award-winning writer, Larry Spotted Crow Mann skillfully brings forth the Oral Tradition in this brilliantly woven Collection of Legends, that beckon the Spirit of the Land, and the Ancient Voices that still have so much to Teach us all. All Lovers of Native American legends, culture, and history will be vividly inspired and thrilled to add this captivating book to their collection. The Art of Native American Story Telling has been passed down for thousands of years. They give life and meaning to everything in the Universe. They show us lessons of Love, courage, kindness, respect, humility, truth, and wisdom. We learn the skills to interact with our environment as a living being and codify those teachings within our own existence. These legends also represent the unknown, the Magic, and that things are not always as they seem. Sometimes, a Tale is shared just for a good laugh. But at the very roots, it's all about the Healing Power that these messages carry. In Drumming & Dreaming, that Healing Power is called upon by Crow. He has suffered a great tragedy - he cannot find his Dream. When Bear sees his winged friend in distress, he comes to his aid. As you accompany Crow and Bear on this Quest, the beauty, mystery, and wonder of Turtle Island mightily reveals itself. Through the voice of Crow and guidance of Bear, Mother Earth, once again, speaks in the language of the Indigenous People of North America. CrowStorm Publishing 2017(c)
