Through the ages, medicine women have relied on love, caring, and faith to bring harmony and healing to those around them. They have assumed different roles, spoken different tongues, and have been known by many different names: midwife, witch, priestess, warrior, herbalist, nurse, doctor, sister, wife, friend, lover, mother -- all have walked the same nurturing path. The paintings of artist Patricia Wyatt celebrate the spirit of the Medicine Woman. Her colorful tableaux, resplendent with Native American motifs and graced by Susan Freilicher's sensitive prose, are meditations on the themes of spirituality, healing, and empowerment. A passionate book of enduring beauty and insight, this compilation of colorful artworks inspires and comforts; it is a favorite among those seeking inner truth or who simply enjoy the power and beauty of the feminine spirit.
