Joseph Epes Brown describes several Native American sacred rites in fine detail. This is a dense reference work best heard with frequent breaks. Four chapters are excerpted from the original text. Each description is rich and resonant and deserves to be thoroughly absorbed before the next is heard. The production is excellent and is a clear enhancement of the text. Contreras’s somber voice, accompanied by chanting and drumming, surrounds the listener. His clear and unrushed pace echoes the nature of his topic and invites the listener to be receptive to each rite. E.S.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 94]
