Tibetans and Native Americans: From the Roof of the World to the Land of Enchantment by Marcia KeeganItem No: 2036
Marcia Keegan's latest book is a chronicle of the similarities between two ancient cultures that have sustained the human legacy through epochs of change. While our current worldview has been shaped by the Renaissance in Europe and the Industrial Revolution, the Native American and Tibetan Cultures were thriving in a world of isolation from modernity, maintaining their own traditions handed down through their elders.
