Summary

What do the first major oil discovery in Kuwait, Mark Twain's fiction, and Harriet Tubman's Underground Railroad have in common? They were all first experienced in dreams. In this book, Robert Moss marshals his narrative flair to make history vivid and the esoteric accessible, exploring the role of dreams in such diverse subjects as the "Dreamtime" of indigenous peoples, the Spanish Inquisition, and the letters of Carl Jung. Acting as an archaeologist, he reveals dreams, coincidence, and imagination to be secret engines in a human story that points to a dimension beyond the physical. Ultimately, Moss shows that since the dream realm is the seedbed of innovation, those who wake up to this source of guidance, healing, and creativity receive inspiring hope for humanity's potential.
