it was amazing
Read in August, 2008

One of my favorite books. An African shaman who was reunited with his family and culture after he had been abducted by Jesuits as a young boy shares the account of his treacherous initiation into shamanism and into a world where magic and reality coexist all from his unique, partially-westernized point of view.
