Abstract:

"This book foretells in a disturbing, straightforward fashion your fate and that of the entire world, and the way in which you in some part determine it. Since it is actual history and not fiction or fantasy, its omens and recommendations may at first seem unacceptable - even preposterous. Above all, this is a book about making the most important choices of your life. Its center, actually, is found on a certain small stone whose flat sides are covered with pictograhic symbols, including three that are V-shaped and inscribed there about 1120 A.D. by Maasaw - the ferocious appearing but actually benevolent Guardian Spirit of the Earth - at the time of the founding of the mother village, Oraibi, "the place where the roots solidify." Each leg of the first two indicates a chosen path taken by Hopi people leading to a division: the left one followed by those who keep the Covenant, and the right by those who abandon it. Each leg of the final V indicates a division resulting from choices also made by the Hopi, but the rest of the world as well."--BOOK JACKET. "The handful of Hopi Elders who speak to us in this book would tell us it is no accident that at this very moment a series of comet fragments are crashing with titanic force into the planet Jupiter. We are being sent another warning. It is no accident either that this message was given quietly to and comes from the only native people who have, in the face of all obstacles and inducements to change, sustained virtually change their entire culture."--BOOK JACKET. "Authorized, informed and guided by centurion Dan Evehema, Thomas E. Mails reconstructs here a story never before revealed in its fullness by any Hopi. Cloistered for surprising reasons until now, it presents a startling message that was prepared for today's world, but pecked as a testimony into the soaring mesa sides and stone walls of canyons nearly a thousand years ago. In essence, it describes a play whose curtains opened at the beginning of time and followed a wandering course dictated by varying choices, but now has run its length and entered its final act where the act where the plot has become less fluid. Time is spiraling down toward a climax which, if its warnings are ignored and a certain mysterious object is destroyed, will probably be catastrophic. How do the Elders know this? Because all of the prophesied signs except the last have been fulfilled, and because even these have been set in motion by events that are taking place at Hotevilla right now."--BOOK JACKET.
