Book recommendation: The Raven's Gift

John Turk: The Raven's GiftI read The Raven's Gift a while ago and meant to review it here. Better late than never...

Jon Turk have written a lot of books on environmental- and earth-science books, and some on adventure travels: paddling, skiing, climbing etc, often in quite adventurous settings. In The Raven's Gift it starts with a paddling over Bering Strait (the scene for the "The Deadliest Catch" ;-), but apart from that there is little paddling in the book (a warning to the commenter who some time ago was very upset that I had the audacity to deviate from the expected paddling-and-nothing-but posts). Mostly it is about his life-changing experiences with the ancient shaman culture of the Koryaks in Kamchatka. As expected there are new-age-vibes through the pages, but Turk never gets stuck with the "travels" as Carlos Castaneda once did and his account stays believable and honest in ways that I did not find in Olga Kharitidi's book on Siberian shamans: "Entering the circle" (and in my opinion, better written).
