Item description for The Clay Disciples by Cano Graham...

Cano Graham is among the foremost activists and authorities in the United States concerning the ancient art of Clay Therapy (Pelotherapy). The very soul of his book is the unimaginable healing spectrum, both internally and externally, of modern clay therapy. This healing phenomenon moves through dozens of inspiring human-interest tales, beginning in 1987 with Mr. Graham's odyssey of building the original Crystal Cross Therapeutic Clay Center in Tecopa Hot Springs, California. In Tecopa, the loveable old-timers exposed him to an "amazin' healing' mud," and his life was forever altered. Cano delights in treating the reader to a wild ride through the lives and times of those people destined to become his feature stories. For five wonderful, explosive years, he submerged himself in the rugged beauty of the Mohave Desert near Death Valley to create one of the largest pure therapeutic clay facilities in the United States. The reader is aware early on that this enigmatic author, who is on hiatus from a productive acting career, has an active interest in medical issues. But an ominous conflict surfaces when Cano is indicted and sent to Federal Prison for his involvement in a conspiracy to distribute drugs and launder money. Cano's journey continues with fascinating stories from Federal Prison when he smuggles the clay inside and covertly uses it to treat inmates with afflictions mainstream medicine does not handle well. The Clay Disciples, written during his eleven years behind the razor wire of Federal Prison, is his semi-autobiographical reflection and represents fifteen years of hands-on experience with clay. Cano Graham has been described as an eccentric activist because of his fervent lobbying to have the regal cause of clay therapy accepted universally as a centerpiece of 21st century alternative medicine. The reader will sense between the lines a whisper of love and respect for all humanity, made audible through this unusual book's inspiring affirmation of life. Indeed, that is the essence and genesis of The Clay Disciples.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Clay Disciples?

Clay is wonderful, but this book is atrocious  Aug 4, 2007
Clay is a wonderful healing modality. It can be used externally to heal wounds, and taken internally to promote good digestion and remove toxins. The number of ways in which clay can be utilized is almost limitless; and we learn about quite a number of them from Graham's book. The anecdotes about the health problems of real, everyday people, and how they are solved using clay, are down-to-earth, believable and compelling. This makes the uses of clay believable and compelling as well.

Unfortunately, there is very little science in the book to explain how and why clay works. Science-wise, the most important paragraph on page 92 -- which states that negatively-charge clay works because it is drawn to toxins, chemicals, inflammation, torn tissue and other materials that have a negative charge -- is an ERROR. The paragraph should read that toxins etc. have a POSITIVE charge, which is why the negatively-charged clay corrects health imbalances. No wonder a reader might be confused!

Sloppy editing, typos and grammatical mistakes abound. In the introduction, Graham states that he's not a writer. But this doesn't excuse his atrocious writing. Although some of the descriptions are lovely, too often the author gets lost in unnecessary details. For instance, entire pages are devoted to dialog for such mundane activities as people planning to meet for dinner, when a one-line "We met for dinner" would have sufficed. Other times, Graham is stingy with material that should be expanded. Was the money laundering for which he was eventually jailed done to finance his clay retreat? Or were there other reasons as well? Did he ever regret not having told his mother the truth about his illegal activities? And what was his attraction to taking drugs all about? For someone who capitalizes on his colorful life, the book woefully lacks self-analysis and depth.

Another, major detraction from the book is Graham's overblown ego. His obvious and laudable devotion to the clay tells its own story and does not need to be embellished by Graham's barely disguised attempts to make himself appear important. Finally, Graham's years in prison and how he used clay to help the inmates -- which is heavily publicized in the promotion of the book -- is barely expanded on. The reader is ripped off in that regard; you'll have to read Graham's upcoming book to learn more about that aspect of his life.

Overall, this book succeeds in whetting the reader's appetite to learn more about healing with clay. However, it fails in almost every other respect. For a wealth of free information about clay, go to .
The Clay Disiples  Nov 4, 2006
I picked this book up at a friend's house and had no intention of reading the whole thing. Two days later I finished it. It's a very interesting read. From the introduction to "The Love Child", I found this one hard to put down. I hope Mr. Graham follows it up with an expanded version of his experiences in prison.
Wonderful alternative therapy and healing  Nov 3, 2006
This book is excellent. You will be surprised at all the uses for healing clay. It is amazing and I highly recommend this book to everyone. You will benefit and will know others who can benefit.
