This is a good preliminary book if you want an insight into the life of a Korena Shaman. Nothing new in terms of penmanship but the subject of the book is quite interesting especially if one wants to get a beginners idea of korean culture.
Maggie
excellent introduction to ethnography, memoir and autobiography, as told by a female shaman and her anthropologist.
Vivian Keh
the author's interviews with this woman have been soooo useful.
Clifford
Fascinating . . . if you're interested in Korean shamanism.
