    The reader must decide for himself whether Shamanism appeals to him as a cult peculiar to this region, or whether it is part of a very general primitive magico-religion. Exploring potential post-Palaeolithic survivals of shamanism in Europe, he looks at the idea that shamanistic elements can be detected in Neolithic art or in Early Mediaeval Welsh and Irish literature.

One story collected in the s tells of the shaman Khosogoi who was believed to "eat the souls of children".

In the United States, drugs such as peyote and ayahuasca are legal or in a legal grey area when used by people who can prove they are part of traditional culture. Combining scholarly research with spiritual insight and with over illustrations, maps and diagrams, the information is presented in a clear and lively way, enabling the reader to navigate easily through the various topics dealt with and to follow the threads of the intricate tapestry woven as the parallels between the ancient shamanic traditions of Tibet and Siberia unfold. The original location of the Proto-Uralic peoples and its extent is debated. The word shamanism itself is believed to have originated from the language of the Evenks who inhabit Siberia's eastern edge.
