Much More Than a Basic Book of Scared Places!

I was expecting something much less when I bought this book back in 1997 - what a pleasant surprise to find that the author Bernyce Barlow actually was giving the reader more than a geographic travel book. She actually has some insightful observations and comments about these places. Her own understanding of their importance in our own search for personal sacredness in life comes across in this book. She covers all the known places like Mount Shasta and the City of Refuge in Hawaii - but she also comes up with some that new - at least to me. One in particular she refers to as the "Lourdes of America" - a little adobe chapel in New Mexico. So I felt that I got more than my money's worth out of this old tattered and torn and yellowing book that is about 10 years old now. I have personally gone though a couple of thousand books in the last decade but have kept only a significant few dozen - of which this volume is one. If you live in the west, or want to travel out west - you should by all means get a copy of this book to use as a travel guide. It is well written and easy to follow. The photos are a wonderful addition to the book. Her maps of the locations are general but one has no problem locating them on a real map or on Map Quest to find out how to get there. This book is also good for the arm chair traveler who cannot get out there and physically explore these places - the author makes them come alive for the reader and there is some value to be gained from just reading about them in her book. I personally recommend this book for all "spiritual journeys".

Native American Review

This book is instrumental to understanding the basics of SacredSites...Barlow's insightfull and easy to understand format isrefreshing. The way the chapters are small provides for pick it up ~read & do it all over kind of refreshing reading. I feel thisshould be a textbook for schools and required reading for spirituallyorientated courses to provide a fundamental foundation to continuestudes from.

Inspired Reading.... It makes you want to start traveling

Sacred Sites of the West was so informative and inspiring...I wanted to start exploring our Mother Earth right away. Not only could I not put this book down,I found myself taking notes and going to these sites to heal and purify my body and spirit. Barlow's style is easily understandable for the novice as well as the academic. Great lessons have and will be taught by Barlow as well as Our Mother Earth. Great Read ! A Must have for anyone's library. Thanks Bernyce... Keep writting!

Accurate and entertaining, a great read!

One of the best books I have ever read on the subject of sacred sites. Well researched, terrific photography and extremely sensitive toward a subject that needs to be understood by all people who travel and seek out the magic of Mother Earth

it really hit's home for me ... thank's bernice for the info

Nov.1998 We live in an area that has established ,documented protected archaological sites that were once occupied by the Nisinen and later the Maidu in No. California. ancient sacred wells,tooling sights,grinding holes complete with mataties (grinding stones)and this all is on or within a lay/Cathay line. Bernice's book has helped us understand what is going on and why we experience "waves" of energy fluctuations in our area. Her book helped us locate the right place to call home. Thanks Bernice! Were looking forward to your next book. Sincerly Bri Bri n Patti.
