Book Description

From School Library Journal YA-Another in the list of Brown's wilderness/mysticism/ethos/survival books. This one takes readers through some of the most profound experiences of the old Apache of the title, who imparted to his grandson the wisdom expressed in the author's earlier titles. Going much deeper than nostalgia for a lost way of life, this work exhorts readers to eschew materialism and waste, and return to a simpler but more satisfying relationship with the fragile Earth. Grandfather is filled with visions and mystical phenomena as it relates the old man's search for the universal and sublime truths that will enable humankind to find harmony with nature.Judy McAloon, Potomac Branch, Prince Edward Public Library System, VACopyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
