Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lyon offers an excellent overview of shamanic healing, a topic that has been largely ignored in the reference literature. Recommended for academic collections in anthropology or Native American studies." - Library Journal

"This is a significant contribution to the study of Native American shamanic healing. It benefits from the author's 26 years as a field researcher. This is a purchase suitable for general Native American collections and for comprehensive medical collections." - American Reference Books Annual
