Meditations with the Hopi

Published by Bear & Company
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

This is a story of creation and change, of prophecy and fulfillment in the world we all journey through--a world the Hopi call koyaanisqatsi, or "world out of balance." A heartfelt and reverential view of the Hopi Way as seen by one of the few white men to have lived within this ancient culture, Meditations with the Hopi imparts to us the essence of the Hopi experience--from child's first cry to soul's departure, each transition celebrated in song and ritual.

Robert Boissiere (1914-2002) first went to Hopiland in 1949 and lived among Native American people until his death. He is the author of The Hopi Way, The Return of Pahana and Po Pai Mo: The Search for White Buffalo Woman.
