Holy Wind in Navajo Philosophy

The University of Arizona Press

"The author has written a well-documented book on the Navajo concept of personality. . . . Holy Wind gives life, movement, thought, speech, and behavior and links the Navajo soul to the immanent powers of the universe. . . . A valuable case study." —Journal of Psychology & Theology

"An admirable volume . . . it illustrates how much we can learn about the importance of poetry as a fundamental activity by investigating the traditions of what should be acknowledged as the New World's unique classical past." —New Scholar

"This book is a fascinating analysis of what obviously is a central dimension in the traditional Navajo awareness of life." —New Mexico Historical Review
