Prentice Mulford was once described as a thinking man, not a reading man. His insights into the mysteries surrounding humanity derived from firsthand thought and experience, not from books. On such age-old topics as reincarnation, the power of thought, the mystery of sleep, the value of prayer, and the occult (all found in this collection), Mulford's attempts to understand our transcendental nature were intuitive and sympathetic, not ordered and logical. This very human quality, along with an unrelenting optimism and faith in man's goodness, lend a freshness and vitality to his work that transcend era. This is self-help for the soul, mind, and body. American author PRENTICE MULFORD (1834-1891) is one of the oddest fixtures of 19th-century literature.
