In Dr. Hamill's book, "Songs of Prayer and Power in the Columbia Plateau: the Jesuit, the Medicine Man and the Indian Hymn Singer," a Jesuit and Dr. Hamill's two Indian “grandfathers” —one a medicine man, the other a hymn singer—engage in a collective search for the sacred. "Songs of Power and Prayer" reveals how song can bridge worlds: between the individual and Spirit, the Jesuits and the Indians.
