What Readers are Saying...about Don Trent Jacobs aka Four Arrows books;
Edwin Bustillos: recipient of the Goldman Environmental Award, has suffered 4 assassination attempts at the hands of the Fontes Drug Cartel, and is a Raramuri/Mexican advocate for his people.
"Although some articles have been written about what is happening to my people regarding the drugs, lumbering and violence, only Don Jacobs has captured the spiritual understandings that have allowed us to live in balance for thousands of years. As a recipient of the Goldman Environmental Award, as the Directorof the Sierra Madre Alliance and as a half-Raramuri Indian, I can say without reservation that Primal Awareness will help make the world a better place if enough people read it. I agree with Dan Millman's review of the book when he said it is a 'suspense story that embraces realms of psychology,anthropology and magic.'I can say without reservation that Primal Awareness will help make the world a better place if enough people read it. "
Judith Simon Prager, PhD. :
"Forget all of those bogus, would-be "shamans" and read this book if you want to viscerally understand what primal people have to teach a civilization too far from its roots to heal itself. Don Jacobs is the most courageous human being I can imagine - from his daring "horse-whispering" exploits with wild mustangs and his death-defying vision quests in the land of the Raramuri, to his theories and propositions which boldly challenge all of our assumptions. He reminds us that we are literally "this close" to being fully- realized. Even psychic, as humans, our main impediment to our greatness being those comforts we cherish. Having read Primal Awareness, I know that I will never be the same."
Phil Dickerson, Texas :
"I sat down in my easy chair that night with The Bum's Rush, and was so intrigued with Dr. Jacobs' observations and analysis of Rush Limbaugh's linguistic strategy that I read the entire book. Having been in the Radio business for many years now I am well aware of the power of Words and their effect on listeners but I've never read such a clear and scientific breakdown of word strategy. I commend Dr. Don Trent Jacobs for sharing some of his knowledge in the field of Psycholinguistics with his readers. This and the science of Neurolinguistic Programming have not been easily accessible to most Americans because it is usually found only within the pages of Academic Text.
Cristina Manett Mortensen:
" I just read your book primal awareness and wanted to send you this thank you note - it was so inspiriting and helped me understand and untie many of the 'knots' in my life! I have become so enthusiastic about it I have recommended it to one of the publishers in this country for translation into Danish.I hope they decide to do it - the book is really a gift to humanity thank you again. "
November 4, 1998 Reviewer: A reader from Nebraska Times:
"I could not put the book down. Primal Awareness is both uplifting and tragic. I was saddened to tears, other moments I was inspired. This is truly a unique book, combining a remarkable true life story with a more "scholarly" analysis of the thinking processes that differentiate between indigenous thinking and traditional western thinking and how we can all regain our amazing "primal awareness' to help us live a full and balanced life."
Lori Colomeda, Tribal College Journal, Summer 2000
"Primal Awareness is a fantastic tale of unbelievable magnitude. "
