Praise for the First Edition:
"...a highly significant work... of extra ordinary importance in this time of cultural and even spiritual conflict." - Robert Black, New Dawn magazine.
"... an excellent reminder of the wisdom that can come studying the intersections of cultures, people, and places." - Aimee E. Newell, The Northern Light.
