Brother Eagle, Sister Sky A translation of the words of Chief Seattle. il Susan Jeffers.
Dial Books/Penguin Books USA Inc: NY, 1991.

A most amazing book! There is an almost tangible power flowing through the message of Chief Seattle to the representatives of the U.S. government as they try to buy native lands. The truth is so absolute that we feel the essence of his words even though we are reading a translation without his imposing presence. "The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth." and "What befalls the earth befalls all the sons and daughters of the earth."

The paintings are an excellent partner in this wondrous statement of truth.
