The image of Kokopelli, born centuries ago among the native tribes of the American Southwest, is as vivid today as ever. To Native Americans, Kokopelli appears to be many things: a symbol of fertility, the spirit of celebration and music, or, possibly, a traveling salesman. In this hilarious and informative book, author Dave Walker explores the story of the hunch-backed crooner. We learn the factual history behind Kokopelli, and explore the recent popularity and resulting commercialization of the image. Sprinkled throughout are photographs of the common as well as the most unusual places Kokopelli can be found. Cuckoo for Kokopelli unleashes the secrets behind the phenomenon and pokes fun at our obsession with this misunderstood ancient icon. Like the people before us, it appears the world is still cuckoo for Kokopelli!

I enjoy Kokapelli and this book was a delight to read. I gave it to a friend as a housewarming gift. Well received! Share the happiness of the Kokapelli.

bought this for a gift for a friend that cooects Kokopelli's and decor. It was really a nice book, that gave meaning to the Kokopelli legend. Lovely illustrations.

This book was terrible. I was looking for a book that had real information about Kokopelli and I bought this book thinking it was filled with good information. I was sadly mistaken. This book rambles on about the author and how he "heard Kokopelli" well he was at the mall. It also has inappropriate information about Kokopelli that was only in this book and not anywhere else. This probably means that the information is FALSE! This book was not informative at all, it was just a bunch of rambling about false things! DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!

Dave Walker gives you a modern twist on the ancient myth turned recent Southwest icon. The author also offers you some illustrations of the modern marketing of the Kokopelli. Overall, the book is fun and easy reading. A good book for a day in the park, ride on an airplane or just a lazy day!

While I have regretted buying some books in the past, I never have felt so shamelssly ripped off by a writer. This pap wouldn't make it in a Sunday supplement. Clearly written to cash in on the popularity of the kokopelli arquetype, this book offers absolutely NOTHING in the way of new knowledge or useful information.
