Masked gods : Navaho and Pueblo ceremonialism by Frank Waters( Book )

54 editions published between 1950 and 2003 in English and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Masked gods is a vast book, a challenging and profoundly original account of the history, legends, and ceremonialism of the Navaho and Pueblo Indians of the Southwest. Following a brief but vivid history of the two tribes through the centuries of conquest, the book turns inward to the meaning of Indian legends and rituals : Navaho sings, Pueblo dances, Zuni kachina ceremonies. Enduring still, these rituals and ceremonies express a view of life, of man's place in the creation, which is compared with Taoism and Buddhism, and with the aggressive individualism of the Western world. - Back cover

People of the valley by Frank Waters( Book )

16 editions published between 1941 and 2006 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People of the Valley is a moving story of one of the powerful spirits of the Southwest, that almost foreign land within the borders of the United States. In this case the spirit is that of the isolated Spanish-speaking peoples who confront a threatening world of change. These are the people living high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. They are a people of the soil, living a happy life in their peaceful valley--until the government would change their way of life. The story is of many people, vivid in their special characters. But the dominant person is Maria de la Valle, the herb-woman. We see her as a young girl, free in he love; then in middle-age, shrewd, irascible, intuitive; and then as an old woman, independent of both state and church, and the leader of her whole community. Frank Waters has captured with great beauty and understanding a life of the spirit threatened by the chrome-plated age of America -- Back cover

Conversations with Frank Waters by John R Milton( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publication of these candid, informational conversations offers a rare opportunity to meet Frank Waters the man--his closeness to the land and to the Indians, his mysticism, his rich and varied life, his understanding of Southwest Indian culture and religion, his compassion. In a series of seven taped interviews, Waters and Milton ranged freely over many topics. Here are Waters' experiences on the Mexican border, from which came The Yogi of Cockroach Court; his stay in Mora where he met the old woman who became the unforgettable Maria del Valle of People of the Valley his first-hand experiences with the secret Penitente sect cameo portraits of his father and grandfather; his friendships with Taos artists Leon Gaspard and Nicolai Fechin; the reactions of his neighbors, the Pueblo Indians, to his classic novel of Pueblo life, The Man Who Killed the Deer. Apart from the rich store of anecdotes, these conversations also touched often on the values which unify and give such force to Waters' many published books: the powerful "spirit of place" experienced in the American Southwest and its influence on every group of people who have settled there; the role and the meaning of the subconscious in both Anglo and Indian cultures; the possibility that we may one day learn to reconcile the dual aspects of human nature. Unpretentious, informal, Conversations with Frank Waters illuminates the visionary and gentle nature of one of this century's most powerful and intuitive writers -- Back cover
