Riassunto: A compelling account of the Yakima shaman observed from 1872 to 1882 plus first-hand accounts from shamans or their patients early in this century. Recounted is the terrifying quest by youths after their personal magic power (tahmahnawis), magical cures for soul loss, disease, snakebite, even locating corpses for reclothing and burial. Of particular interest, following grievous accidents or grave illnesses twelve tribesmen and women relate of their deaths, extra-body experiences and then return to life to do penance.
Dall'editore: 253 pages. Numerous illustrations, extensive notes, selected bibliography. Detailed, extensive, the volume gives a fascinating view of the shaman's healing techniques, of Yakima traditional belief and practice.
