About this book

Allen explores the dramatic and mysterious world of the medicine man. He examines four diverse cultures and places - the shanty towns of Haiti, the jungles of Siberut Island, the wastes of Siberia and the arid mountains of Mexico. By observing their customs and rituals, he unveils the varied, often complex and colourful, world of Shamanism and finds out what the West can learn from them.
