Before I even bought this book, just standing in a bookstore for 15 minutes reading paragraphs I was moved. The pictures of these strong, proud people will touch you inside. The portraits are fantastic and you see so much in their eyes;strong eyes that speak to you. The skin looks is like tough, brown leather. You can see in their eyes that they have knowlede that we don't, but they are willing to share it to make you a better person and this world a better place. You can tell that there is so much to learn from them. When you begin to read, they have a different way of putting things that is very clear with fewer words. There is a calming that takes place over you whilst reading their words. They are a wise people and again, you can see the knowledge and strength in their eyes and body language just from these great photographs. If you want to be enlightened, calmed and at the same time have your spirit soar by knowing that there is something stronger and greater out there than material things, get this book, it will not be a disappointment. You will really understand better , respect and appreciate these people. It's a great gift to yourself.
