From the Realm of the Ancestors

From the Realm of the Ancestors, edited by Joan Marler, is an extensive anthology in honor of Gimbutas. Over sixty contributors range from archaeologists to linguists to geneticists to artists, poets, and ritual makers. Reading it, I was struck by both the depth and scope of her knowledge and the broad spectrum of people she influenced. Joan Marler has done an enormous job collecting, arranging, editing and framing this amount of material. I (Starhawk) am proud to have an article in it myself. The book is published by:

Knowledge, Ideas and Trends, Inc.
1131 Tolland Turnpike
Manchester CO 06040

The ISBN number (for ordering) is ISBN1-879198-25-8
