With a combination of reverence and humor, Panther-Yates takes us on a tour of the Four Corners’ world-renowned – and lesser known – ancient sites. Originally published in the Santa Fe Sun-News, these columns testify to New Mexico’s undeniable power and mystery.

In addition to the usual Native American dances, kiva mysteries and petroglyphs, the author introduces us to the offbeat spiritualities of the Muslim-like Penitentes of Abiquiu, Chimayo’s santeros and a teaching coven of witches in Taos. We visit a Sikh temple, study the Phoenician Hebrew Ten Commandments Stone in Los Lunas and explore the hippie nirvana of Santa Fe.
