Summary

Drawing on 30 years of helping families in-crisis, this profound fable by the Anasazi Foundation illustrates the anguish of conflict and shows how we can end war within ourselves, within families, and even between nations. 
 
The Five Legends tells the story of two estranged brothers, leaders of their people, who find themselves on an unexpected journey.  Struggling against each other, they stumble and fall into a great and terrible canyon. Trapped, the two brothers are rescued by an old man—“the last of a people”—who offers to guide them out of the canyon if they agree to learn the five legends of peace. The brothers agree and begin a journey that may not only save themselves, but also their people. 
 
The brothers learn that to heal any conflict we must first look within ourselves. As this fable beautifully puts it, “War does not begin or end with armies and leaders. In truth, war begins and ends within each of us—within our hearts. When we choose to war with others, we turn our hearts away from them and blind ourselves to their light. …To have a heart at war is to invite war into your life.” The path to peace begins when we stop thinking about “me” and start thinking about “WE.” 
 
This poetic and moving allegory is written for all ages. Its message is both timeless and desperately needed for our own time

    Wealth and the Wealthy is a fascinating and detailed commentary on wealth, not only in its conventional context, but also in its many facets. The author delves into how Americans of various diversities bring to the tableby virtue of their very own uniquenessa valuable service that we not only as Americans profit from but the international market as well.
    
    One of the more interesting points about the book is that the author, in seeking to satisfy a seeming thirst on the part of the hoi polloi in how the other half lives, succeedswith some ironyin the shocking revelation that the masses are in some respects the other half. As Americans they are not only likely to be the owners of high-tech gadgets in their homes, but they are also the consumers of services and products given them by billion-dollar, Fortune 500 companies.

    "The more we meditate on the Medicine Wheel and on the Cosmic Wheel above, relating these to the circles, spheres, and mandalas of other traditions, the deeper our realization grows of the oneness of the many paths leading to the Center." Although Evelyn Eaton walked principally the Native Indian path, this book reflects her belief in the strength and beauty of all religious traditions. This is the personal account of her triumph over cancer through Native American healing rituals. Of white and Native American ancestry, Eaton was a Metis Medicine Woman.
