Crossing Into Medicine Country
A Journey in Native American Healing
by David Carson
From the coauthor of the million-copy, best-selling Medicine Cards comes this riveting account of initiation into
ancient wisdom and the healing power of a Native American shaman.
A fascinating narrative of self-discovery, David Carson tells his story of initiation as a conjure man--a ceremonial healer--with the Choctaw
medicine woman Mary Gardener. Through Mary's teachings, often conveyed
in folktales of the primordial healer Yellow Tobacco Boy, and through
his own, cometimes mind-bending experiences, Carson gives readers a glimpse
into an alternate reality, where Western notions of physics do not apply,
and health and illness express the balance between man and nature.
A work rich in spirit and Native American lore, Crossing into Medicine
Country will appeal to anyone interested in alternative beliefs.
"Crossing Into Medicine Country is a rare account of a true transformational
experience, which holds the key to profound healing. David Carson reveals
sacred Native American knowledge in a unique, new way. Here is an exceptional
opportunity to follow him on his journey through myths with hidden meaning
and a deep touching of the soul."
