A little too intellectual for my tastes. One of his own descriptions of shamanism is that it is based on the idea of 'direct revelation' through nature. When you create intellectual systems to model how the world is, you cut yourself off from that revelation, place a wall between you and it. But a decent book for beginners.

The book is written in an "all tribes" type format and has a simple easy to understand approach. Anyone may pick up this book with no prior knowledge and get alot from it, others who may be more knowledgeable or tribe specific may find it somewhat simplified. In any case it is a very well done book with good solid approaches to incorporating Native American Medicine Wheel teachings into your daily life.
