The Thundering Years

The Thundering Years, by Julie Tallard Johnson, with a chapter on dreams by Laurel Reinhardt.

According to native traditions, the Thundering Years are the time in life to listen to intense feelings, dreams, desires, and goals–to be outrageous and even difficult. The Thundering Years are the teen/young adult years, the time when you are journeying into adulthood. They are exciting years, full of potential and creative energy, and they are painful years, full of turmoil and self-examination. The Thundering Years offers wisdom from cultures around the world to help you survive your Thundering Years with your soul, creativity, and even sense of humor intact.
