It is my honor to name the author Shaman Elizabeth Herrera as my Hero and Role Model. I’m proud that she is taking a stand and speaking out about global issues that affect us all, as I know that it takes a lot of courage to do that. Also, she has written some amazing books that carry important messages that we all need to hear today.
She uses her books’ story lines and characters to carry explanations of Native American spirituality and to call attention to environmental concerns. So, she achieves the hard trick of educating while entertaining and entertaining while educating.
From her Author’s page on Amazon:
- Shaman Elizabeth Herrera is a healer, poet, activist and an author who writes life-changing books. Her stories encourage people to stretch outside their comfort zones and reexamine their own beliefs.
- She was fortunate to know her great-grandfather, who was a full-blooded Apache who had smuggled sugar and flour from Mexico into Texas, exchanged gunfire with Texas Rangers, and crossed paths with Pancho Villa. He also raised her father. Elizabeth was raised in a Christian home but lost her faith in her early twenties. For over a decade she searched for something to fill the void and eventually [re-]discovered Native American spirituality (shamanism.)
She is the author of Shaman Stone Soup: True-Life Stories That Show Miracles Can Happen to Anyone; Dreams of Dying: A Tragedy, Two Realities, One Divine Truth; and Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators.
Her books are garnering well-deserved attention for their insightful subject matter. Her latest book, Earth Sentinels, received this review from Dennis Nighthawk (member of the White Laurel Band of Cherokee, healer and spiritual leader): "Riveting! I found it difficult to put the book down. The fiction reads as a non-fictional account of the spiritual side of the indigenous people and the problems facing our world today. A must read!" She is shining a light on spirituality and how we are all connected.
Again, I am very proud of this author who is taking a stand and speaking out. That is courageous, and her books reflect many lessons we can all learn. It is my honor to name the author Shaman Elizabeth Herrera as my Hero and Role Model.
