  • The Raven's Gift
  • by John Turk
  • Price: $27.99

For adventure traveler and writer John Turk, the strangest trip he ever took was the journey he made as a man of science into the realm of the spiritual. In 2001 Moolynaut, an elderly shaman in a remote Siberian village, entreated the spirit of a great black raven to help heal Turk’s previously fractured pelvis, leaving him healthy, pain-free and without a rational explanation. The Raven’s Gift is a life-altering vision of the ties between the natural and the spirit realms, as he searches for the spirit raven, traversing the frozen tundra where Moolynaut was born, camping with bands of reindeer herders and recording stories of their lives and spirituality.
