Book Reviews of Strange Journey.

1. A Native American of Mohawk and Delaware ancestry speaks of the powers handed down from her medicine man father and psychic mother. From early in childhood she began to hear the voice of the inner spirit, had a spirit playmate, and was awakened to light and the understanding of nature. She tells of the strange and mischievous experiences at home and at the seashore, among family members and the family cat, the sixth sense with which she knew things others did not. And things that became evident: that there is a good spirit that returns from the happy regions to help the people of this world, especially those whose hearts are open. Lone Dog would find herself in and out of a trance: "Many voices talked to me at different times, but I had to be very cautious when I answered. I always called on our Great Spirit Creator to guide me." Through vivid dreams, she would regenerate past Indian cultures, learning of her heritage. The reader learns of the awakening she experienced when she left New York to visit her husband's Sioux people in Nebraska. Lone Dog shares a powerful account of the wisdom of the child, of true liberation, of the Akashic record from the heavenly kingdom, and of her relationship with Christ. And the promise of Great Spirit: "It seeks to bring us together in love." Personal words of rebirth, from one of the first Native Americans to write about spiritual and psychic knowledge.
