Library Journal

Brown has written a number of good guides to nature. In this volume, he purports to share his knowledge of the spiritual realm, and on occasion, he provokes thoughtful introspection. But more often he comes across as condescending, filled with pity for those who do not share his deep rapport with nature. Brown's account of the spiritual path includes such things as time travel, superhuman strength, and above all, visions. More skilled hands could have formed this material into a spiritual tale of the search for enlightenment, but here it sounds trite, fantastic, and ultimately, unbelievable. Public libraries may get requests for this book from Brown's many fans, but until then, it is not recommended for purchase. Randy Dykhuis, Grand Rapids P.L., Mich.
