As a person who has always had a fascination for shamans, particularly from Native American culture, this book is interesting and encouraged me to delve further into the practices. I have always believed animals, particularly horses, can reach humans with disabilities. Just watch the success riding for the disabled has with children when they can move sans wheelchair! Children beam and the horses become so gentle.

The best "introduction to shamanism" book I have read 1 Aug. 2002
By Robert D. Martin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have been actively involved in shamanism for the past 10 years and am constantly on the look-out for books that provide enough flavor and texture to give someone unfamiliar with the practice a good overview of the topic.
Of the over 50 books I have reviewed, this is the best.
"The Book of the Shaman" is well organized, colorful, inviting and does a terrific job at touching on the breadth of the shamanic experience. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have.

A Fantastic Introduction into the ways of the Shaman!!! 21 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is not only a fascinating read, but is filled with exceptional photos throughout. It takes you on a journey which explains the ancient rituals of various shamans of the world, while explaining the reasons and uses for these rituals. It takes you through the "how to" in step by step detail, along with photos which are a great enhancement to the text. Beautifully written and presented - a real keeper for any Spiritual library.

pre-school.... 29 Aug. 2005
By prof_it_e - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I thought because it was unavailable perhaps this book was in high demand. I was quite pleased to stumble across it in two book shops this side and had a squizz. It is so basic/ generic. I would get this book for my pre-teen niece or nephew to cut pictures out and prepare a mock presentation for their classmates at school. I guess it is aimed at people who want to know a bit more about Shamanism (what they use what they do) but not at those who want to know how to get into it. I guess on that level it scores quite well. I think five star reviews are a tad much though.
I recommend 0754813886 (Journeying to Otherworlds by Will Adcock) which I think is a good intro and gives some basic info on stuff to do to get into it as well. Its cheaper ($10 at time of review) and currently available as well.

The Boook of the Shaman; Walk the Ancient Path of the Shaman and Find Inner Peace 7 Oct. 2012
By christine woolaver - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Just got this book. I would not recommend it for any serious seeker of knowledge. It is ok for a small coffee table book. No real meat to the content. Am thankful I got it used as I am very disappointed. Has very little content and some decent pictures. Yes has some ideas of lower, middle and higher levels of existence but one could easily find this info out online in a brief paragraph or two. The word content is probably 25 pages long.

I was really looking forward to a book to expand my awareness of Shamanism. This is not it.

Another great book by Nicholas Wood 31 July 2004
By Kathy Dannel Vitcak - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have greatly enjoyed both of the author's books on the subject. I am at the "information gathering" stage and his books have been so very, very helpful. They are very common sense, yet entertaining. His true passion for the subject is evident in every single word. Once again, this is a gorgeous book to explore, as each part is a treasure unto itself. Get this book, you will enjoy it!
