Horse hooves and chicken feet : Mexican folktales ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,075 libraries worldwide
Mexican folktales invite us into a magical world of enchantment and transformation, populated by cats and kings, priests and tricksters, ordinary people and supernatural beings. A witch turns seven brothers into seven little blue oxen; the Virgin Mary rewards a good girl with a gold star on her forehead but adorns her wicked stepsister with a pair of horns; a young man, thrown overboard to drown, is rescued by a mysterious shadow. Drawing from authentic sources, folklorist Neil Philip has created a rich and varied collection, representing the unique blend of classic folkloric elements and Catholic imagery characteristic of the Mexican and Mexican American storytelling tradition. The retellings capture the wit, spirituality, and wonder of the originals and are perfectly complemented by Jacqueline Mair's colorful illustrations, which are based on Mexican folk art

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 852 libraries worldwide
Explores the long history of the Native American tribes of North America, discussing their culture, their struggles against white immigrants, and the recent resurgence of their customs. American history with a difference, this is a lively and authoritative history of the Native American nations, from pre-Columbian times to the reclaiming of traditions that is taking place today. Neil Philip explores Native American ideas about land and society, religion, science, and history, and shows how the differences between these and the ideas of the whites resulted in the sad catalog of misunderstandings and betrayals in treaty talks and settlements. It is also a tale of resilience and renewal, including a positive assessment of Native American cultures as they enter the new millennium. Spoken and written accounts by Native Americans are drawn on extensively, and the volume will be illustrated with archival photographs

The religions book : [big ideas simply explained] ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 823 libraries worldwide
Religion has influenced human culture since prehistory, shaping everything from the politics of war and peace to notions of morality and issues of sex, reproduction, and family. On an individual level, it has also offered people a sense of meaning, purpose, and comfort, and even today, when science appears to offer answers to many of the world's conundrums, faith persists and many religions--including Christianity and Islam--are still growing. The Religions Book explains in a clear, accessible way more than 100 of the most important theological ideas, from those bound up in the earliest cultures to others that have emerged in the last few hundred years, along with all of the main tenets of the world's major faiths. In doing so, it considers key issues such as the problem of defining good and evil, the significance of suffering, creation and the afterlife ("Why are we here?" and "Why do we die?"), and the nature of god.--Publisher's description
