a master's methods

thomas mails' honesty and humility in recognition of the potent and vibrant personality of fool's crow allows him to become a nearly transparent medium for this account of a shaman's personal methods and rituals. at their most effecftive, shamanistic rituals use p[hysical symbols to trigger and continue cycles of effect and reaction between the individual practitioner and the world-system as a whole. this book doesn't go into great depth in presenting the fundamental metaphysic of the native american heritage that fool's crow continued, but provides a rich and meticulously detailed account of demonstrations of its practice by a healer, teacher and leader. this book may tempt immitators and pretenders; they might find themselves playing with fire. this volume should not be taken as a single source outside of the greater context of the heritage it celebrates and partially describes, but it can be a valuable supplementary resource for a careful student, or the agile and humble explorer.

A book that opens a door

The legacy of Fools Crow is his wisdom & power as a Lakota medecine man. The path he walked, as a man called to serve his people & the Great Spirit, is recalled in this book. His simple message is that all of us can be "hollow bones" for the Great Spirit to work through. The reader learns that the power & wisdom of Frank Fools Crow's life was in his detachment from ego and submission to a higher force. Some readers may only be interested in the ceremonies & rituals described in the book. However, the message is the spirit of the man & his committment to his God & to his people. I can not imagine that any reader can walk away from this book untouched.

Wonderful book. Highly recommended!

This is a wonderful book, and I recommend it to anyone thatwants to understand the late great Holy man Frank Foolscrow (TheCeremonial Chief of the Teton Sioux).I give Mr. Mails high praisefor including the two following comments in the book.1. Page 40"I have never touched alcohol or drugs; I have not even usedpeyote like they do in the Native American Church. Wakan-Tanka cantake me higher than any drug ever could."2. Page 160 "Ifeel it is dangerous for amateurs to recommend something about whichthey know very little and I do not wish to be the cause of effectsthat might be disastrous." I agree completely! Just becauseherbs are natural does not mean they are safe. I have one tinynitpick. When Mr. Mails described the Sioux medicine wheel on pages59-60 the information is incorrect.Here are the correct colors anddirections they are associated with.Black in the West andrepresents Earth.White in the North and represents Air.Red inthe East and represents Fire.Yellow in the South and representsWater ....Wah doh Ogedoda
