A different kind of book

This is a narrative of one American Indian 1/2 breed who is led to learn the old ways of native medicine. It's very interesting, well told, great narration. It gets a little repetitive then ends. It starts out with a story then goes into "flashback" but the story isn't finished.,..the reader is never brought up to speed on the beginning situation. Still, very interesting listen.

Fascinating journey into Conjuring

Being someone who is interested in Native American lore and their Stories and Natural Magic/Conjuring I was mesmerized by this book. It reminds me a bit of A Separate Reality by Carlos Castañeda but more about the Animal Spirits and how we interact with them. Good listen.

If i had to choose one book

It would be this book. Davids telling is humble in my opinion. he tried as much as he could not to shame what the old ways are while presenting their existence and importance.

Crossing into medicine country

Narration was very good. The story was nice but you lost me with all the terminology about flades? It began to sound a lot more like new age stuff rather than Native American. I'm not of the belief that Indians are much on numerology.
