Native American Healing - A Lakota Ritual
Grounded in music, this book describes a Lakota ceremony in terms of the music used in each successive element of the ceremony from start to finish. Within this framework, the author, a widely known and respected Lakota singer, ceremonial leader and healer who happens also to have been educated at Dartmouth College and Harvard University, describes and expands upon the formative personal encounters with his Lakota elders on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota that lead him to his current understanding of each part of the ceremony. Strange as it may seem given the subject matter, Native American Healing: A Lakota Ceremony is a unique individual perspective on living well in widest possible sense of the word. These narratives function much like commentaries on I Ching hexagrams -- illumination and explication of practical applications of the natural laws that govern the art of peaceful and productive living.

Calling of an Angel: The True Story of Rene Caisse and an Indian Herbal Medicine Called Essiac, Nature's Cure for Cancer
For over 50 years, a Canadian nurse named Rene Caisse treated thousands of cancer patients with her own secret herbal tea called named Essiac—Caisse spelled backwards. She originally obtained the natural formula from native Ojibway Indians and brewed the remedy herself in her kitchen. Caisse was a devoted healer and tireless champion of using her nontoxic treatment for cancer as an alternative to destructive radiation and chemotherapy. Caisse fought for decades to get have Essiac recognized and accepted by the broader medical community, but— constantly challenged by large and powerful pharmaceutical companies with political influence—the treatment contiunued to remain controversial and illegal. Believing that promoting and using her cure to be her true calling, she continued to treat patients for free despite threats of imprisonment. Her patients, many of whom believe that Essiac helped drive their cancer into remission or cured them entirely, spoke passionately about her and came to think of her as an angel. In Calling of an Angel, Dr. Gary L. Glum tells Caisse’s inspiring story and presents this long-suppressed treatment as an option for patients and families currently battling cancer.

American Indian Medicine (The Civilization of the American Indian Series)
The purpose of this book, says the author, is to show the effect of Indian medicinal practices on white civilization. Actually it achieves far more. It discusses Indian theories of disease and methods of combating disease and even goes into the question of which diseases were indigenous and which were brought to the Indian by the white man. It also lists Indian drugs that have won acceptance in the Pharmacopeia of the United States and the National Formulary. The influence of American Indian healing arts on the medicine and healing and pharmacology of the white man was considerable. For example, such drugs as insulin and penicillin were anticipated in rudimentary form by the aborigines. Coca leaves were used as narcotics by Peruvian Indians hundreds of years before Carl Koller first used cocaine as a local anesthetic in 1884. All together, about 170 medicines, mostly botanical, were contributed to the official compendia by Indians north of the Rio Grande, about 50 more coming from natives of the Latin-American and Caribbean regions. Impressions and attitudes of early explorers, settlers, physicians, botanists, and others regarding Indian curative practices are reported by geographical regions, with British, French, and Spanish colonies and the young United States separately treat...

The Bhagavad Gita, 2nd Edition
Easwaran’s best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita is reliable, readable, and profound. His 55-page introduction places the Gita in its historical context, presents key concepts, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. This edition includes chapter introductions, notes and a Sanskrit glossary. Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. He is a gifted teacher and an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism. The Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Yet the Gita is not what it seems – it’s not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. “The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gita’s subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage if he or she is to emerge from life victorious.”
