Turtle Dream is a collection of stories for readers of all ages. Author Gerald Hausman (Meditations with the Navajo; Sitting on the Blue-Eyed Bear; Stargazer) experienced these stories with his Native American friends in the Southwest. They are a true reflection of native customs, but more importantly, they reveal that startling moment when life causes us to surrender our conscious power, to discover the nature of who we really are. A footrace in Hopi country and Jemez Pueblo... behind the waterfall at Havasu in the Grand Canyon... a turquoise horse in the heart of Navajo land... riding on Turtle's back deep in a dream... here are stories that delight and amaze, teach and share the old ways of the first people of America.
