The Boondoggler’s Bible - $14

Fighting “city hall” is no fun. If you’ve ever had a legal encounter with a government agency—be it city, county, state or federal—you know how frustrating bureaucratic red tape can be. You can’t change city hall, whether you are trying to do business with it or are employed by it, but you can change your attitude. A positive attitude can stave off broken relationships, premature stroke or even death due to unnecessary agency-induced frustration. This little book is the result of my own survival technique, and I hope it helps you win against city hall in your own case. This is a general overall look at standard operating delay tactics known as boondoggles, so you must creatively adapt your own approach to fit your own problems and situation. Boondoggles are not confined to city hall. Such stall-and-delay techniques are operable on all levels of society, including in one’s personal family life. They are summarized by the old advice given by experts on etiquette about answering ticklish questions: Don’t say yes; don’t say no; say maybe—and then never give a final answer. Or, to put it more bluntly: Keep them waiting until they go broke, give up, move on, lose interest, or die. Whether you win money is not the point; coming out of your ordeal with a sense of humor, good will and health are paramount. So, since there’s a strong chance you, too, are the victim of boondoggling, or will be in the future, let’s get started. Enjoy the challenge. It could save your sanity and life, just as it did mine. The secret is to practice this old adage: If you can’t fight them, join them. In other words, learn as much as you can about the Boondoggle Game and then use that knowledge to your own advantage. To be or not to be a Boondoggler? That is the question!

This fun book by Wanda Sue Parrott just might help you win your fight with City Hall!

Gifts of the Great Spirit – Vol. I – Unknown Namesake - $15

(co-editor) (contributor)

Tribute to the "Unknown Namesake," an unidentified elderly Native American woman captured on photo-film in 1910 by photographer Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952). Curtis traveled North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries preserving the end of the age of free indigenous life through still photography, recordings of languages, and books. While her name remains a mystery to us, we identify with her through the Great Spirit that unites all and honor her as an individual and as a representative of a lost way of life. Thus, the goal of this work is preservation of Native American customs, beliefs, teachings, languages and other facts through the poetry, song lyrics, fiction, and non-fiction contained herein. Additionally, the 2010 White Buffalo Native American Poet Laureate Winner Dr. Carl B. Reed and two White Buffalo Calf Award winners, Barbara Youngblood Carr and Dr. Charles A. Stone, are featured for their 2010 winning contributions.

Gifts of the Great Spirit – Vol. III - $15

Traditionally, the dream catcher has been a Native American symbol for safety and protection. The dream catcher is a beautiful and artistic ornament featuring a circle, intricate webbing, and leather or feathers hanging from the circle. It was placed above one’s bed and legend says the webbing would catch the bad dreams and not allow them to disturb the dreamer sleeping beneath the dream catcher.

Focusing on positive, spiritual, and inspiring attributes of the Great Spirit, we challenge you to look at the dream catcher in a new light. The Dream Catcher of the White Buffalo as a symbol of what the Great Spirit can do for you.

Guruji’s Secret Love Sound - $14

Visiting my 89-year old uncle in his nursing home was never pleasant, but it was outright tragic one day when he literally floated down the hall in a happy daze. He had been given a pill known as a “mood elevator” to counter his depression. He was dangerously “high.” I was saddened, knowing the trend once kicked off by the counter-culture of the late 1960s and 1970s—getting high on drugs—had finally become so legal that even the elderly could be victims. I realized how lucky I was. An ancient guru from India taught me to remain harmoniously balanced by abstaining from drugs. All I needed was his prescription: air both inhaled and exhaled as he breathed to live a healthy, very looooooooong life. And so, I knew it was time to share his secret so others may also reap the benefits of his splendid wisdom. Thus, this booklet is shared with you in the spirit of freedom.

(co-author) (published by Galde Press, Inc., February 2001)

This is the most unusual cookbook in the world: a collection of delicious recipes and practical kitchen tips as dictated by the spirit of a woman who died over 100 years ago.

The late Jackie Dashiell and Wanda Sue Parrott were professional journalists with the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner when Amy manifested to both of them separately and demanded a hearing. This book is the result. Wanda now lives in Monterey, California, where she continues her prolific free-lance writing career and social activism.

Trail of Tears - $15

Revised Edition of Springfield Soliloquy – The Trail of Tears – Missouri: Introducing the Spirits of Five Osage Hunters and The Grand Father 


Wanda Sue Parrott believes this poem, which netted her $91,000, is the highest-paid single piece of poetry by any living poet throughout civilization's history, including Shakespeare. It is so controversial that the author, unable to get a literary review, threatened to sue city hall in order to gain publicity. She read the poem at literary conventions, in libraries, and on street corners.

Set in the heart of lands which temporarily housed various  Native  American  tribes  as they were pushed west during the land expansion of the early 1800s, this updated version of the book reveals for the first time how seven male Native Americans from different tribes appeared in spirit form and helped Wanda Sue Parrott build and win her matter.

This is a public-service pot boiler in which the antagonist is the home site where Cherokee Indians may have camped during the federally mandated relocation (genocide) of 1838-39, when the Trail of Tears passed through Missouri en route to the so-called "Nations" in Oklahoma. The appearance of an Unknown Indian poet's spirit, and Wanda Sue's revelation she had a Chickasaw ancestor, make this poetry book a living literary marker along the historic route on which Wanda Sue Parrott is known literally and literarily as "The Last Indian on The Trail of Tears." Her active one-woman stand against city hall, which began in August 2000, ended with acquisition of her house by the City of Springfield on February 2, 2009.

Order from the author by contacting Wanda at Price includes shipping and handling. Please allow two weeks for delivery after confirmed receipt of order.

(contributing author) (published by Green Shoe Press, April 23, 2014)


- $18 Validiva is a little bit autobiographical and a whole lot fictional. Wanda Sue Parrott started writing the story in 1973 and finished it in 2017.Validiva’s memoir is a futuristic revelation of life in International Time following a nuclear accident that raises the questions: • Is the world rushing headlong into Armageddon, as prophesied in the Book of Revelation? • Is America on the verge of a glorious New Age of Enlightenment? • Is the world doomed to be an archipelago of slime under one world rule? The wonderful metaphysical principles revealed through the drama are genuine, and they work. Wanda Sue has been a Rosicrucian since 1963. She believes Validiva’s story is an allegory of hope based on the question: If man can know the future, can he change it?What do you think?
