As the writer has over 60 years, his perspective is different from the young audience it is aimed towards. It is an easy read, perhaps an hour, but with accuracy portrays some important aspects of the great painter Nicholas Roerich. Having studied his paintings for many years and using them on his computer as "screen savers" the writer appreciates Colleen Messina's brief study of Roerich. It should also be understood that Nicholas Roerich, for the writer, is simply a side study for his real interest in the works and life of Nicholas's wife Helena Roerich. It is interesting to note N. Roerich's comments on the "three dots within a circle" used on his peace banner. He would no doubt have known his spouse's thoughts that it would be Shamballa, Hierarchy, and Humanity within the circle of the planetary Logos! It is fine to see such a book available and one hopes it will inspire younger generations to study these individuals and the purpose of their travels.
This book was an absolute delight. I was somehow under the impression that this was a children's book when I ordered it but that wasn't the case. I couldn't put the book down. I've been interested in Roerich since 1974 and have read a fair bit but the manner in which this book is written brought Roerich close to me. I wasn't simply reading 'about' Roerich. Somehow I entered into his life and values and spirit and felt closer to this master - or 'Warrior of Light.'. I felt ever so thankful that I ordered it even though thinking that it was intended for children - I enjoy being child-like. It is a slim tome but covers a lot of ground. If you wanted more then the only biographical book in print is that by Jacqueline Dechter - NICHOLAS ROERICH the life and art of a Russian master.
Personally, I enjoyed this little book - It's a quick read. Roerich's paintings - pictured in the book - are absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. - I had always wondered about his life. There is no doubt, he was an advanced spiritual man.
