I thought I had a review of this book somewhere, but I didn't...

I love this book. Words cannot express how much I love this book. If you like fairy tales. If you like shamanism and animism. If you like mythology and legend. If you like for your books on shamanism not to be entirely derivative of Native American myths - then this is the book for you.

There is a wonderful selection of shamanic fairy tales and myths within this book, divided into the following categories:

1. Hidden Knowledge
2. Tales of the First Shamans
3. Tales of Travelling in the Worlds
4. Tales of the World Tree
5. Tales of Metamorphosis and Transformation
6. Tales of the Relation of Humans to Animals
7. Tales of Fire and Wind
8. Tales of the Magic Rattle and Shaman Drum
9. Tales of Death and Initiation
10. Tales of Healing.

The tales themselves are well-written, with a wonderful 'voice' that is respectful, succinct, humorous when it needs to be, and serious by turns. Many of the tales would make good stories for children, a wonderful storybook for anyone, and the tales themselves are wonderful motifs and aids for those of us who practice shamanism to extend our own paths of healing and knowledge, respect and truth.
