What others are saying about Kokopelli

“Exceptional Story Telling. This journey through the folk lore about the travels and life journey of Kokopelli gives meaning and depth to much of the early Native American understanding and respect for all of nature. It's story captures the imagination and gives a sense of meaning to several areas of the desert southwest. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to read about the lore of Kokopelli.”

“A wonderfully written story about the ancient trader of the U.S. southwest area, Kokopelli. I thoroughly enjoyed Don's descriptive story about the travels of this very popular ancient character of the Arizona desert. The story begins when Kokopelli was a child through his wanderings from village to village from the coast to the mountains to the valleys to the desert. The timeline expands from his youth to old age and covers all the native peoples he makes friends with along the way. I highly recommend Don's book. I could not put it down until I finished his story. I can't wait for the next book in the historical series of the native peoples of southwest United States.”
