Shamanism is part of the spiritual life of nearly all Native North Americans. This bibliography gives the reader access to a wealth of information on shamanism from the Bering Strait to the Mexican border and from Maine to Florida. It includes articles and books focusing on the spiritual connections of Native Americans to the world through shamans. The books covered compare practices from tribe to tribe, make distinctions between witchcraft or sorcery and shamanism, and discuss the artifacts and tools of the trade. Many are well illustrated, including collections from the nineteenth century.

Editorial Reviews

?What a gem! Rarely does one encounter a title so interesting and informative in the form of a bibliography....The superb annotations for each entry are clearly the most noteworthy feature of this volume; most run about 500 words, but some are as long as 1,000. Even the shorter annotations provide a wealth of information and detail. An extensive, detailed index is also included. Very highly recommended, undergraduate through professional.??Choice
