#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER #1 USA TODAY BESTSELLER #1 WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER #1 INDIE BESTSELLER "The Four Winds seems eerily prescient in 2021 . . . Its message is galvanizing and hopeful: We are a nation of scrappy survivors. We’ve been in dire straits before; we will be again. Hold your people close.”—The New York Times "A spectacular tour de force that shines a spotlight on the indispensable but often overlooked role of Greatest Generation women."—People "Through one woman’s survival during the harsh and haunting Dust Bowl, master storyteller, Kristin Hannah, reminds us that the human heart and our Earth are as tough, yet as fragile, as a change in the wind." —Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing From the number-one bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes a powerful American epic about love and heroism and hope, set during the Great Depression, a time when the country was in crisis and at war with itself, when millions were out of work and even the land seemed to have turned against them. “My land tells its story if you listen. The story of our family.” Texas, 1921. A time of abundance. The Great War is over, the bounty of the land is plentiful, and America is on the brink of a new and optimistic era. But for Elsa Wolcott, deemed too old to marry in a time when marriage is a woman’s only option, the future seems bleak. Until the night she meets Rafe Martinelli and decides to change the direction of her life. With her reputation in ruin, there is only one respectable choice: marriage to a man she barely knows. By 1934, the world has changed; millions are out of work and drought has devastated the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as crops fail and water dries up and the earth cracks open. Dust storms roll relentlessly across the plains. Everything on the Martinelli farm is dying, including Elsa’s tenuous marriage; each day is a desperate battle against nature and a fight to keep her children alive. In this uncertain and perilous time, Elsa—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or leave it behind and go west, to California, in search of a better life for her family. The Four Winds is a rich, sweeping novel that stunningly brings to life the Great Depression and the people who lived through it—the harsh realities that divided us as a nation and the enduring battle between the haves and the have-nots. A testament to hope, resilience, and the strength of the human spirit to survive adversity, The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.

Wizard of the Four Winds: A Shaman's Story is the text that introduced the outside world to shamanic healing in northern Peru. The story of don Eduardo Calderón (who was elevated to almost legendary status as a result of Sharon's research), this book inspired a generation of academics and shamanic seekers alike. Back, finally and by popular demand, this long-awaited and completely revised second edition presents a detailed discussion of Sharon's own experiences as the curandero's apprentice as well as summaries of more than 40 years of scholarship (including Sharon's own extensive work) into the lives and healing arts of other Peruvian shamanic practitioners. More than 70 pages of updated appendices compare and contrast the ritual symbolism of don Eduardo Calderón's mesa with shamanic tools and practices found throughout ancient and modern Mesoamerica and South America. Wizard of the Four Winds: a Shaman's Story is, now more than ever, an indispensable tool for any serious student of Peruvian shamanism!

Jared Crandall's life seems as broken as the Utah landscape surrounding him. With the Great Quake having shattered roads throughout the country and isolating him in his cabin, Jared assumes he will die alone. But Keith Martin, his old LDS missionary companion, finds him, arriving on an unusual motorcycle called the XEB. Keith brings a letter from Church headquarters asking Jared to serve again as his companion-to cross a desolate country where anarchy prevails and to fulfill a mission whose purpose is unclear. A call Jared cannot refuse. In Moab, Jared and Keith join the citizens making a stand against an army of gads-the nickname the locals have coined for those criminals who wear the tattoos of broken chains. A woman named Arsala Taggart fights with the two companions. Young and beautiful with a warrior's mentality, Arsala is determined to protect her town from the marauders. The gads overwhelm the area with an armed tank, leaving little hope for the community. The XEB is the only option to stop the coming massacre. After facing the gads in Utah, Jared and the others prepare for the end of the world on the ground known as Adam-ondi-Ahman, the land spoken of by prophets and sung about in song since the beginning of time. It is a sacred place where fate has gathered thousands-all who have blown to their destiny by the four winds.

A historical perspective with genealogies of the vibrant Spanish colonial town originally known as "Villa del Seänor San Ignacio de Loyola de Revilla," later shortened to "Revilla." In modern times it was known as "Guerrero Viejo" when in 1953 sadly, andperhaps unnecessarily, it was inundated by the waters of Falcon Dam along with many land grants. The author tells the story of Guerrero Viejo within the context of the broader histories of Mexico and the United States that impacted this once thriving colonial commercial hub. The author shows that the land grant owners and heirs on the Mexican side were victims of the blood-soaked history of Mexico and on the US side they were subjected to mischief and flagrant violations of the terms of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
