When Halifax or other narrative/editorial voices were talking, the honeyed nature of the text aggravated me. I remarked at one point that I wanted to see if she could make it through three paragraphs without the use of the word "profound". (She could, but I think you get the point.) Note that the book was written in 1979 and tastes have changed-- I guess I prefer my anthropology or narration a little less decorated.
Still, if you're interested in shamanism, a really interesting and probably valuable book. Halifax breaks it into 9 sections with different thematic focus-- Vision Quests, Seeing in a Sacred Way, etc. I didn't get a whole lot out of the categories, but probably useful if you are looking for something specific.

Joan Halifax is the definition of awesome. This book as all of hers, is absolutely brilliant. I read them many times.Published on March 29, 2014 by tattletail
36 separate shamanic lives described. This is a remarkably good collection, it has several I was aware of, and several more I had never heard of. Well chosen.Published on July 26, 2012 by David
