Eagle's Quest: A Physicist's Search for Truth in the Heart of the Shamanic World

by Fred Alan Wolf
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Wolf, a theoretical physicist and author of The Quantum Leap ( LJ 11/15/81), focuses on his personal involvement with shamanism. He describes his experiences as a participant in shamanic ceremonies around the world and endeavors to explain shamanic practices in terms of quantum physics. He supports his contention with nine hypotheses that link the two seemingly divergent practices. Unfortunately, his narrative is extremely disjointed and skips back and forth between unrelated episodes. While he includes many fascinating descriptions of shamanic rituals, his finished product is basically a book of reminiscences and musings. His study may be of value to libraries seeking books on personal spiritual experience, but its inherent subjectivity is a limiting factor.-- Elizabeth Salt, Otterbein Coll. Lib., Westerville, Ohio
