Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: This is a description of a Navajo shamanistic healing ceremony. It centers around a recitation of a cycle of myths about a Navajo culture hero, Dsilyidje Qacal. His journey takes him to the land of the gods and goddesses, where he learns powerful magic. The narrative is compelling and compares well with the Homeric Odyssey, which it resembles both thematically and stylistically. The ceremony incorporates dance, song, prayer, sand-painting, drama, sculpture, conjuring, and even a bit of farce. (Quote from

Lloyd later modified his position to minarchism. (Quote from (Quote from (Quote from (Quote from
