5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Reclaiming One's Power
What stands out to me, ten years after first reading this book, is that it represents so clearly the way that women easily give their power away and then develop blind spots to having done so. Lynn's ordeal reclaiming the marriage basket from Red Dog is a metaphor for my own process down this road. After all these years, it is still a strong milestone for me in my...

3.0 out of 5 stars A light read with hidden gems.v
A light read which I enjoyed. It states that it is a true story at the front of book but I feel there has been quite a bit of artistic licence, never the less worth reading. The women portrayed are fascinating and reveal several hidden gems.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Reclaiming One's Power, 14 Jun. 1999

What stands out to me, ten years after first reading this book, is that it represents so clearly the way that women easily give their power away and then develop blind spots to having done so. Lynn's ordeal reclaiming the marriage basket from Red Dog is a metaphor for my own process down this road. After all these years, it is still a strong milestone for me in my personal growth reading. It's also simply a wonderful and entertaining story. I highly recommend it to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars so inspiring, so intriguing, so beautifully written, 3 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Medicine Woman (Paperback)
This was a book that could not be put down, a book that was so amazingly written. Lynn Andrews has much power..as a woman and a story teller. So many different insights are told in this story that have so much to do with each and every readers lives. All women can relate to her teachings in one way or another. We all nee d to step back..and realize how much we can learn from our sisters...and from our Mother Earth. The Native way is the Way... Happy trails...

Loved this book. It follows a Spiritual journey through Native American culture and female empowerment, as well as being an exciting, scary and heart-racing page turner!

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but with good info, 14 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Medicine Woman (Paperback)
The woman who wrote this book used the teachings she was given without permission, the sort of behavior that gives European Americans a bad name. The book is somewhat flawed by a self-indulgent focus on herself, though the information she passes on is valuable. Please give these teachings the respect they deserve without idealizing the author.
