I was given this book by a friend whom I share spirituality with. I started reading it and thought to myself... what? Is this really true? Look up on the Internet, and lo and behold, we have ourselves a Castaneda-type - only this one's worse. This is a white lady from Beverly Hills purporting to say that she has been an apprentice to Native American shamans, and has been the first and only white person ever let into their secret global Sisterhood of the Shields.

I read this book for the first time in 1995 when I was new to shamanism and although I was guided to actually seeing the Sisterhood of the Shields in my visioning, I didnt really understand it all. About ten years later I came across the book again at a second hand market in Amsterdam and read it with new eyes...

Jaguar Woman and the Wisdom of the Butterfly Tree is a gripping tale of adventure and initiation which takes the reader deeper and deeper into the shamanic world of altered realities. Ly...more
For a book that is sold as a true story, it just doesn't fly with me. I don't buy it. The good news is that I can cull her other books from my to read shelf.
Well written though a seemingly problematic author.
I read this book during college as part of a seminar, "creating otherness: the making of cultural anti-selves." snooty title, but fascinating. I discovered that of Lynn Andrews' books are about her divorce - boys drool, girls rule. Hilarious, if it didn't sell so well to 50 year old divorcee's in Santa Barbara...
Cool book about a shaman and a shaman in training. Most characters in these books are women. Need to read Medicine woman next although it came first in the trilogy. Still need to find out what the third book is called.
David Richardson
Not bad, suppose to be a true story but it sounds a little far out to me. Mabey I can't open my eyes wide enough to see.
Of the ilk of Carlos Castaneda's works. An intriguing read, especially as drawn from the great perceptions of a woman.
Besides being a fascinating series of adventures, it ends with some illuminating comments on timelessness and ego.

Another exceptional book by Lynn Andrews, an author whose work I love. A great personal journey book.
I'm really embarressed that I read this. I think it's really brave of me to admit it publicly.
David Rainey
Great book of fiction with an underlying message of strength and courage for women. Enjoyable.
Great journeys! And a great reminder of the ways we can find and use our own powers.
I read it as fiction, totally unaware of the controversy about this author.
Great! You have to read the whole series!

All of Lynn Andrews books are good.
