PRIMAL RELIGIONS, PRIMAL PASSIONS: An excerpt from AND LIVE REJOICING by Huston Smith
By Publicity Admin

Spiritual trailblazer Huston Smith, who passed away on Friday, December 30, 2016 at age 97, was a preeminent teacher of world religions. 

He wrote comprehensive books about religion and memoirs of his own life, but nowhere did he merge the two elements of seeking and experience with such storytelling flair as he did in And Live Rejoicing, a book that New World Library is proud to have published. 

We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book, in which Huston discusses Native Americans and indigenous cultures. May he rest in peace.

New World Library publisher Marc Allen shares his thoughts on The Wolf at Twilight
By Samy AbulEla

Kent Nerburn is a storyteller, and The Wolf at Twilight ranks right up there with my favorite works of fiction. It has the same quality of insight, the same wacky sense of humor, the same surprising combination of comedy and tragedy, and the same rich cast of characters that made his previous book Neither Wolf nor Dog the winner of the 1996 Minnesota Book Award.

Every page has surprises. The book is a unique blend of fiction and non-fiction that can be read on many levels. It’s a mystery, for one thing, and can be read and enjoyed as a well-crafted mystery story filled with revelations and insights.
