The first half was a bit annoying as Malis simply put Fool's Crow on a pedestal with reverent, somewhat gaudy language. However once he got into the process of a medicine man's work, I was very interested. The detailed descriptions were great for the subject and I appreciate Malis' respect of all tribes and all beliefs.
