I tried to get this book along with your other recommendation The Chalice and the Blade
from the library earlier in the week. They don't own either title so have just ordered a new copy of The Myth of Goddess
by Anne Baring from Amazon at a very reasonable cost. Am much looking forward to reading it so thanks again for the recommendation.
A point of interest:
The opening passage of above book is the famous 'quote' attributed to Chief Seattle (1855). It always moves me so on this occasion I did an internet search - was surprised to find this link (see below) which claims that these words were written by an American screenwriter in the second part of the 20th century. Wouldn't you just know it.
My pleasure.There well worth buying and at a very reasonable price.
As for the Seattle speech, I read about the invention of it by chance a couple of days after posting it on my FB wall! Wise words, but I won't be referring to them again. Shame though, as they do express a great truth, but the lack of authenticity is an issue of course. Ah well, there's plenty of genuine Native American wisdom to find truth from.
