This book is a rich repository of commentary, elders’ memories, personal and cultural narratives, all given life and skillfully strung together by an author who appropriately has little presence in the text.
The book itself is easy to read, with language accessible to all skill levels. When reading this book, one of the first things that became apparent to me was how much of the actual text was direct quotes and commentary given by the elders and shamans of the Ulchi people. I finished this book feeling more like I had just participated in a timeless dialogue, or a lengthy and pleasant conversation over an intimate meal, rather than turning pages in a book.
Academics, students, lay scholars, and the curious will all find something to value in this book. Those interested in healing will perhaps find something that sings intensely to their souls.
