It is interesting to find the similiar tradition between China and Native Americans On p.63, it talks about Native American thunderbird, the same belief among the Chinese. On p.65, it covers Piasa, a large winged animal that ate flesh and lived in a cave by a river. It does look like a Chinese dragon! Both Tibetan Buddhism and Navajo create sand mandalas for medical power (p. 74) On p.79, it mentions that in Tibet, sticking out the tongue is seen as a friendly greeting. Is it wonderful to see this facial expression in Mexican sun calendar stone? The medicine wheel of Native American (p.91) share the same pattern in six direction, in compass point colors and concept as Chinese. Peach tree originated in China and is considered the holy tree of life, producing an elixir of immortality (p.99) How come peach tree ended in forest in Navajo Canyon de Chelly? Native American, Maya and Chinese share the same concept that our earth rests on a turtle and earthquakes are its cosmic shaking.
This book offers a gold mine of information and makes a good interesting read. It would be more fun if this book covers pictograph and petroglyph.
