“The Northeast has been totally and inappropriately marginalized by the mainstream. Kreisberg’s work shows the Northeast is right up there with the Southwest, Midwest, Effigy Mounds, Lower Mississippi Valley, and other traditions in terms of archaeoastronomical alignments, sensitivity to landscape features, and cosmological understandings.” (William Romain, author of An Archaeology of the Sacred)
“Archaeoastronomy does not have to be incredibly difficult. In fact it can be fun! Guided by Glenn Kreisberg’s aptly titled Spirits in Stone, even the untrained reader can share in the excitement of discovery experienced by some of the foremost explorers of Native American and pre-Columbian stone structures in the Northeast. This is a clear, easy-to-follow introduction to a field that was once shrouded in secrecy and clouded by conflicting opinions. Many readers will be shocked by their own proximity to ancient cultures as they turn these pages. I truly recommend this book, especially to young explorers who sense that the old history books are wrong but don’t know where to begin. Begin here!” (Evan T. Pritchard, director of the Center for Algonquin Culture)
“Kreisberg’s work will contribute greatly to demonstrating the fact that not only did Native Americans construct impressive stone structures throughout the eastern United States but that these sites are sacred and an integral part of their cultural traditions and should be protected!” (Harry Holstein, professor of archaeology at Jacksonville State University, Alabama)
“Reading Glenn Kreisberg’s deeply and thoughtfully researched book, I can hear Joseph Campbell intoning the words of Hermes Trismegistus, from the Emerald Tablet, ‘As Above, so Below!’ If you want to understand the truths of prehistory, look for the writings of the heavens on the earth. Spirits in Stone shows us how very substantial the insubstantial lore of mythology can be, in the very caves and megalithic sites of northeastern America. The ground we walk on is hallowed ground!” (Stephen Larsen, Ph.D., director of the Stone Mountain Counseling Center)

He shows us here in the Woodland Northeast are alignments to discover and magnetic and electronic Yin and Yang power grids to explore right here in the stones in the American north east. But the extra treat in this book is the translation from French on an amazing long piece on Carnac the Breton rows of standing stones that transcends knowledge.by the wise woman Ros Strong, one of the founders and last independent thinkers who was at the beginning of New England Antiquities Research Association NEARA. She is still ahead of her time. Very little is written on these long rows of Megalithic Standing stones in English. Here is a gift bonus in this book!. I can testify to the living energy in those stones. Besides all that he photos and maps of New York woodland Standing Stones, effigy mounds are packed in here. Let me just say this, If you think Woodstock was over with the festival read this and discover what wonder lives in it's woods!
“Spirits in Stone: The Secrets of Megalithic America (Decoding the Ancient Cultural Stone Landscapes of the Northeast)” by Glenn Kreisberg was quite an eye-opening read. Honestly, I read it thinking I would learn there was some giant Stonehenge like structure just down the road from me. Let me go ahead spoil it for you, there isn’t. However, I did learn there is a surprising amount of fascinating stone artifacts all over the northeast, and that there is an inherent bias in the archaeological community as to their importance and the need to study and preserve them.
Fortunately, Kreisberg and the New England Antiquities Research Association finds these sites, studies them, and works with others to get them protected. In the process, they’ve learned there is more to these stones than just their age. “Spirits in Stone” shares their reports from many of these locations. I’m not going to lie, it can be rather dry reading but I still enjoyed it and feel it’s an important book.
