Scarlet Feather book. I loved this book by Joan Grant who wrote of her past lifetimes

Scarlet Feather book. I loved this book by Joan Grant who wrote of her past lifetimes. This story covered a pair who would change the early Native American tribe they were part of to form their own tribe, one that brought men and women together. Even though this book was written in the 1940s it felt very much in the NOW when not only males/females are recognizing both aspects of themselves but when attention is being placed on ONENESS.

by. Grant, Joan Marshall, 1907-. Indians of North America. New York : Avon Books. inlibrary; printdisabled; ; china.

Narrated by Mil Nicholson. Follow the life of Piyanah, daughter of a clairvoyant Indian mother, in Scarlet Feather. Piyanah demanded new freedom.

She had Tom Feather, the most handsome and loving man that any girl could want. And even more, she had been photographed recently at two events with very good connections. A knitwear promotion and at a charity fashion show where amateurs had modelled clothes at a fund-raiser.

Criticised on publication in 1945 for its explicit violence, "Scarlet Feather" was Joan Grant's only book for adults set among the Native Americans. As with all of Grant's novels, "Scarlet Feather" conveyed a positive message within its story - that of Piyanah, a young girl who demanded new freedoms and an end to her tribe's sexual segregation and brutality.

The Far Memory Books. Series: Far Memory Series. Length: 11 hrs and 30 mins. As a child, Joan Grant astonishingly became aware of her uncanny "far memory," the ability to recall past incarnations who had lived in long-ago times and far-flung places. Her seven historical novels stand out for their vividness and rich detail. For Joan, these books were not works of the imagination but personal recollections of her previous lives.

The Scarlet Feather - Joan Grant. Piyanah, the heroine of Scarlet Feather, is a member of a Native American tribe that has strayed from its noble heritage. Her clairvoyant mother refuses to accept the brutality of the tribe's laws and the segregation of men from women, so Piyanah and her cousin Raki grow up as outsiders. When she learns that her father is Chief Na-ka-check, Piyanah chooses to defy tradition and train as a Brave, overcoming daunting physical and spiritual challenges.

Follow the life of Piyanah, daughter of a clairvoyant Indian mother, in Scarlet Feather. Piyan demanded new freedom and an end to her tribe's sexual segregation and brutality. Trained and educated with the young braves, she develops strength and courage, and soon she will succeed the tribal chief-that is if she can at last overcome a series of ordeals which prove her worthy of the Scarlet Feather.

This, like Joan Grant's other books, is a fascinating study of the culture she writes of. No one, of course, can know for sure if these are really memories of past lives, but what does it matter if we can be a part of the adventure in the time and place she writes of? I love her books!

I love all of Joan Grant's writings -- for various reasons, but her best writing is always about what is going on or has gone on in her present life. And, of course, it must be that way. Even when we know something about a past life, that is NOT the life we are presently living, that we need to be involved in, that we need to be present for. All time may be happening at once, as the physicists say, and so perhaps in some inexplicable, arcane way we are living all our lives simultaneously. Nevertheless, our consciousness is and must be fully employed in the life that now consumes our days, hours, minutes.

The problem with Joan's past life stories is that they are not vital no matter how well she can relive them or piece them together. The energy comes off them as from a distant cloud on the horizon. She does well, but these past life stories are beyond the pale and cannot be engaged with in the same immediate way present time stories can. Time strips them of their liveliness, making them a bit dry, repetitive and sometimes nonsensical. Something then seems amiss, for in fiction, is it not paramount that all actions should make sense? Don't we like to talk about clearing up the "loose ends" in any work of fiction? Whereas in life (or as we foolishly like to think of it, nonfiction), events are often nonsensical with a ton of loose ends because there are too many factors involved in any set of events or circumstances to know the full story.

These past life books are frequently barren in feeling. In recall, emotion often does not inform the telling. Think back 20 years to a traumatic event and see for yourself. If you were telling a friend about it you would not go through the same emotion as when you lived that event. Joan made the mistake of trying to be too true to her past life, so the bones of it have fallen to dust. If she had taken some creative liberties she might have injected some emotional liveliness into her narrative, bringing the characters and scenes to life, for in a way, "times gone by" need translating for the modern mind and the more bye-bye those times have gone,
the more translation is needed. Joan failed to do this, thinking that the word pictures themselves were truth enough. They aren't.

And yet from an historical perspective they are fascinating. Reading them as "Joan's previous lifetimes" can certainly make for many an interesting hour.
When reading Joan Grant, you enter into a new world and must simply continue reading it until the end. Good reading.
