Worth Cooley Prost: Honoring a Remarkable Journey, by Anne Newman

Worth Cooley Prost was my friend. Even before I met her, she knew of my water ceremony work. Out of the blue, she mailed me a glass water necklace. years later we met up in Virginia and went to my friend’s art show. Then she gave me the glass water earrings. I miss her still. Worth is spirit and always was.



When I read Viking, NJ, I questioned if any part of the story was genuine? Were the Vikings in America? According to BBC, “If [Sarah] Parcak has found evidence of another Viking site, it will ignite a new search for Viking settlements across eastern Canada and New England, perhaps as far south as New York and even beyond.

How does one protect a society? Follow the story of Olvir’s mountain and Olvir’s people in Dellinholm and Tyrholm. In the story, the Vikings build a settlement on higher ground, so the community is protected. 

Any book that opens the door to scientific curiosity is good because it is going beyond simply storytelling. Viking, NJ, allows the reader to learn something at the same time.
