Format: Hardcover
This is a must if you are interested in the work of shamans. It's also fascinating from the point of view of seeing how the West has changed its opinion of shamans through the ages. It is a well edited selection from ancient chronicles, explorers journals, anthropological texts and other works. I have been reading this subject with a degree of obsession for many years now - yet they have found pieces I had never even heard of. There are also some really exciting pointers for future research...
