Book Breakdown 

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Pink Sticky Stars

This was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

I knew quite a bit about journeying before I read this novel but I did like that the things I knew were expanded upon and given to me in more detail. I loved learning all about shamanic teachings. My great-grandmother was a Native American and died long before I could learn more from her so I suck up things like this because it makes me feel closer to her. I love learning anything about Native culture and their religion. That was the main reason I wanted this book and it didn't disappoint. Even if you plan to never put any of this into practice, you will still learn a lot and even from the viewpoint of different Native traditions.

The writing is nice, gives details without feeling like it's just listing things to do. I loved the little stories she gave beforehand of her own experiences even when she failed sometimes and had to work harder. I like that because journeying can be hard to get started and even to keep it up so I liked those added parts.

Overall, this is a great book for beginners and even if you already know a wee bit as I did. You'll still learn something new, I promise. It's worth it!
