"This volume presents knowledge about various aspects of California Indian shamanism and the religious and philosophical contexts in which it exists." Thirteen papers by several California Indians, as well as some of the foremost non-Indian scholars, who can speak with authority and true understanding of the topic. Ken Hedges' paper demonstrates the connection between shamanism and rock art, while Lowell Bean's classic paper on power should be required reading for anyone attempting to understand rock art in California.
