Holy wind in Navajo philosophy
"The author has written a well-documented book on the Navajo concept of personality. . . . Holy Wind gives life, movement, thought, speech, and behavior and links the Navajo soul to the immanent powers of the universe. . . . A valuable case study." --"Journal of Psychology Theology" "An admirable volume . . . it illustrates how much we can learn about the importance of poetry as a fundamental activity by investigating the traditions of what should be acknowledged as the New World's unique classical past." --"New Scholar" "This book is a fascinating analysis of what obviously is a central dimension in the traditional Navajo awareness of life." --"New Mexico Historical Review"
