Photographs by Edward S. Curtis. 185 pages, illustrations, cloth, edges of dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. From the publisher: Touch the Earth is a selection of statements and writings by North American Indians, chosen to illuminate the course of Indian history and the abiding values of Indian life. The passages, arranged in four chronological sections, range from the witty, the eloquent, the lyric, to the deeply emotional. Together they recount the nature and fate of the Indian way of life and how it now seeks to revivify itself as a self-affirming cultural force. Throughout the selections one sees the values that distinguish Indian life - and that today make it something more than an object of either historical or political interest. Especially, there are the values of living in harmony with nature and of regarding the land as a sacred creation. This part of the Indian experience, readers of Touch the Earth will discover, can become the heritage of all of us. N° de réf. du libraire 17263
