This marvelous book is about Labyrinths; one of the most ancient designs of humans & in Nature; found everywhere and in every culture, in Human design itself. Eliot follows History through myth, legend, lore & philosophy exploring in a creative and prosaic way. This book came into my hands by way of a customer and I could not put it down. Thank you Ariadne! ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
Beautiful, horrifying , haunting and exquisite are all adjectives for Robert Macfarlane's newest book and now my favorite one. I love this book. Macfarlane weaves magic around his incredible and often scary adventures in nature. Underland is a bardic journey worthy of any druid or shapeshifter, blending myth and realty into a seamless stream that becomes a part of you if you let it. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

This is a crucially important book in contrast to Brown's Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and more in the vein of Deloria's Custer Died for Your Sins. Treuer has written a new classic that confirms that, although Native Americans have suffered enslavement, diaspora, and both cultural and physical genocide, the tribes have also persevered, adapted, and often thrived. This is a passionate, articulate, and expertly documented reassessment of American history from a very different perspective by a successful Native American author. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
This novel is a truly mystical read, full of Inuit traditions, myth & spirituality entwined with Viking lore and history. Omat, born with Shamanic memories is catalyst in her community's survival in a time of climatic change and meeting tall fierce new people. This is a marvelous tale of warring gods, heroes & shapeshifters. Based on an ancient Inuit myth & Icelandic Sagas. I don't want this book to end, perfect for a snowy day. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
