Have you ever wondered about NDE’s (Near Death experiences)? If you have then The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences: How Understanding NDE’s can help us live more fully by Dr. Penny Sartori is for you. This book is an in depth look into near death experiences.
We are shown just what Near Death experiences are and also the after-effects many people experience after an occurrence. One such after effect is not being able to wear a watch due to the fact that it stops working when the person who had the NDE wears it, but it works when others put it on. I also really enjoyed the chapter entitled, ‘The Cultural Variations of the NDE” in which we are shown how different cultures have different experiences during NDE’s. We are also introduced to the history of how death became medicalized. I really enjoyed reading the experiences of those who had experienced and NDE and the insights they have gained from the experience.
Overall, this book was a wonderful in depth look into Near Death experiences and how we can experience life more fully by learning about them. I would recommend this book to all those who are interested in the end of life and near death experiences.

Simply Cherokee: Let’s Learn Cherokee: Numbers & Counting by Marc W. Case teaches us how to count in Cherokee. We are also taught ordinals, months of the year, days of the week, and money.
We are taught the numbers a few at a time and then after each set of numbers there is a matching section and an area to count using the newly learned numbers. We are taught the ordinals and given a review. When we are taught the days of the week we are to read the day and then write it and say it as we write it in Cherokee which I found very helpful in remembering them. There is also a review of the Cherokee syllabary which I think was very helpful.
The only thing is for me personally, it really helped to write the numbers a few times and say them at the same time. I wish there was a bit more of this in the book but one can also do that on their own. I also think it would be a good idea to have flash cards to go along with this book, similar to how the first book has flashcards, which can be purchased separately.
Overall, this book was a wonderfully simple way to learn numbers and counting. I recommend this book to those who wish to expand their knowledge of the Cherokee language.

Simply Cherokee: Let’s Learn Cherokee: Syllabary by Marc W. Case is a simple and quick way to learn the Cherokee syllabary. I absolutely loved this book. This book shows us a fun way to learn the syllabary.
Each of the eighty four syllables comes with a short story to help us remember what each syllable sounds and looks like. Many of the syllables stories have to do with the character of Sue or someone related to her, so it is easy to keep the syllables and stories together.
I found this book very easy to use and feel confident in being able to read the syllabary. I am excited to read the next book by Marc W. Case in order to increase my knowledge of the Tsalagi language. I highly recommend this book to those wishing to learn to read Cherokee syllabary.

Power Words: Igniting Your Life with Lightning Force by Sharon Anne Klinger is a book that examines the energy behind words and the impact they have to lift us up and help us succeed in our goals. These words are not affirmations, they can be as simple as using the word believe or a short phrase such as, ‘persevere to joy’. We are shown how these short words or phrases can change our current perception of reality and help us take action.
This book is broken up into five parts. In part one we are shown how words have energy behind them and the different aspects that help us to create a trigger word. In part two, “Trigger words for every purpose” we are shown how a single word can help us in any situation. In part three we are shown different power words from around the world and also different times that we can use in our life and the energy behind them. Part four looks at limiting language and how to go from limiting words to lifting words. Part five shows us how to use power words to look for love and find success.
I enjoyed this book immensely and will refer to it often. I would recommend this book for those who want to try a new way of using words to live a more empowered life.

Long-Ago Stories of the Eastern Cherokee by professional Cherokee storyteller Lloyd Arneach is a wonderful collection of traditional Cherokee tales such as, “The Milky Way” and “The First Strawberry”. There are also accounts of the heart wrenching removal of the Cherokee from their home, known as the Trail of Tears. There are also accounts of the person who created the written Cherokee language, Sequoyah.
This is a wonderful short read. I loved learning the traditional tales from a professional storyteller. There are also wonderfully illustrated black and white pictures that accompany the stories which have been beautifully drawn by Elizabeth Ellison.
Long-Ago Stories of the Eastern Cherokee would be a wonderful book to read to children to expand their awareness of traditional legends. These stories teach wonderful lessons for any child. This book is also wonderful for those who wish to expand their knowledge of Cherokee storytelling. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Cherokee.

Cherokee Astrology: Animal Medicine in the Stars by Raven Hail is the newest version of her book: The Cherokee Sacred Calendar: A Handbook of the Ancient Native American Tradition. This book teaches us a little about the Cherokee Sacred Calendar and shows us how to find our day sign and those of the ones we love according to the Tsalagi (Cherokee) calendar.
This book also includes and Ephemeris that goes from 1900 to 2015 to better help us find our day sign. Once we find our day sign we can then go to that specific chapter and learn about the qualities of our specific sign. We are also given the name of the sign in Cherokee, as well as transliterated into English.
We are shown the qualities of our day sign along with the direction, flower, color, stone, element, and herb attached to the sign. With the direction it also shows the qualities such as, mine, being redbird, it says, “Direction: West-Dreamtime underneath the tree; portal to the Otherworld; honeycomb of peace and love and life eternal.’ We are also shown the specific challenges facing each sign.
I really enjoyed this book and it was actually recommended to me by a friend after I had gotten it. I would suggest this book for anyone wishing to learn about the Cherokee and also those interested in a different type of astrology.
