The Dreamer's Book of the Dead

Although not a sequel, this book requires reading of his previous book Dreamways of the Iroquois, which I have not read. Accordingly, I missed on a lot of what he was saying. In this book, it is assumed that the reader believes in an afterlife and that oneiric communication from that dimension is possible. However, Moss gives some interesting comparison and stories from various ancient beliefs from different parts of the world, including Tibet which obviously inspired the title. I enjoyed reading Dreamer's Book of the Dead as an inspirational book full of dreamers’ stories. For a deeper understanding of what he is saying, reading the previous book, quoted from page 1 of this book, is required.
