Myths and legends about the Native American Kokopelli figure

Synopsis:

Here, author Dave Walker sets straight the story about the hunch-backed crooner, Kokopelli. We learn the factual history behind the petroglyph, and explore the recent popularity and resulting commercialization of the image. Sprinkled throughout are photographs of the most unusual places Kokopelli can be found.

Synopsis:

The image of Kokopelli, born centuries ago among the native tribes of the American Southwest, is as vivid today as ever. To Native Americans, Kokopelli appears to be many things: a symbol of fertility, the spirit of celebration and music, or, possibly, a traveling salesman. In this hilarious and informative book, author Dave Walker explores the story of the hunch-backed crooner. We learn the factual history behind Kokopelli, and explore the recent popularity and resulting commercialization of the image. Sprinkled throughout are photographs of the common as well as the most unusual places Kokopelli can be found. Cuckoo for Kokopelli unleashes the secrets behind the phenomenon and pokes fun at our obsession with this misunderstood ancient icon. Like the people before us, it appears the world is still cuckoo for Kokopelli!
