Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this third volume of the White Buffalo Woman Trilogy, Heyoka Merrifield continues the story of White Buffalo Woman and her journey through the land of the Lying Down Mountain. Set in the home of the peaceful Hopi Nation and based on Hopi culture and mythology, Lying Down Mountain contains sacred wisdom of peace and spirituality that can bring tranquility to today's turbulent Mother Earth. The Native American saga begins with the first two volumes in the series, Eyes of Wisdom and Painted Earth Temple.

Review:

"In this preachy conclusion to Merrifield's White Buffalo Woman Trilogy, a Hopi-inspired narrative and photos of the author's artwork combine for a clichéd tale about the dangers hubris. Sacred twins and lovers Spotted Cat and White Bison Calf (now grown and renamed Jaguar and White Buffalo Woman) are welcomed by the Peaceful People into the Land of the Lying Down Mountain. Peace is briefly shattered when a tribe of violent nomads attempts to raid the Peaceful People's land. Tranquility is restored when the tribe offers to share an extravagant feast. Time passes and White Buffalo gives birth to a daughter-Dream Catcher-who, true to her name, has prophetic dreams. The book ends on a note of hope and warning, with preciously prescient dreams about an unbalanced future in which humans are disconnected from and heedless of their impact on the Earth. (Also mentioned are air that burns human lungs and a deadly 'gourd-shaped cloud' that spills hot ash across the landscape.) Merrifield offers a message of peace and reconnection with the Earth that is well-intentioned if overly simplistic." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
