This is a good basic book on shamanism. It doesn’t have a lot of in-depth discussion, but does a fine job of covering the basics of shamanism, from traditions in various parts of the world and their common elements to the theories, purposes and fuctions of shamanism. One of its best features is a nice collection of color photos. This is a nice book to add to any collection but might be especially suited as an easily scanned and read primer for a class or a school library.
