Praise for Gerald Hausman

I have known Gerry since our early days in college and I have seen him mature into a prolific writer on American Indian literature. I feel he has once again caught the spirit of his quest.

Ray Brown, Navajo translator and advisor on The Turquoise Horse

Hey, Coyote Man, give me a holler!

Jay DeGroat, Navajo artist

Navajo myths are among the most poetic in the world, full of dazzling word imagery. Hausman’s meditations are likewise sheer poetry, traveling on sunbeams.

Richard Erdoes, co-editor American Indian Myths and Legends

Gerald's sensitive interpretation of each story, his vocal play with words enhances every moment of the tales. Ray Griffin's music explores the open world of tones, action and landscape.

Ashley Bryan, winner of the Coretta Scott King Award

Gerald Hausman's Stargazer is a very different book: a paradoxical Southwestern fantasy, drawing upon local folklore and Indian myth; a smoothly told tale of no small complexity and more than a little mystery. It reminded me of a combination of Philip K. Dick and Carlos Castaneda.

Roger Zelazny, author of The Chronicles of Amber Series

Hausman honors Native American philosophy and spirituality even as he reveals it.

Booklist (Ghostwalk)

Lyrical, quietly forceful… links to both the physical and spiritual worlds.

Publishers Weekly (Ghostwalk)

…folkoristic while clearly representing real people.
