20 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and German and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strange & Prophetic Dreams of the Indian People. This is a touching story of a great grandmother instilling the Indian spirit in her great grandson. It gives guidelines for a glorious future: 'We have had enough now of talk. Let there be deeds.' The words that follow are written simply, wholly based on the belief that only God is the Knower. That men should love one another and understand one another is the great message of the visions of the Indian peoples told about in this book, with nothing of selfishness nor vanity, nothing of narrowness nor pride. The bulk of this book is the expression of deep feelings from the heart. On the other hand, it is also important to write about only what is reasonable and intelligent, so, in the appendix at the back of this book, the authors give what they consider reasonable and intelligent answers to why the study of prophetic dreams has value, how they fit patterns, and how it may be possible to understand them
