Praise

"Here is a book to read and re-read. Eduardo el Curandero is not only a vivid portrait of a man of knowledge, but also a poetic evocation of the rhythms of good and evil, sickness and health. A fascinating document."
—George Leonard, author of The Transformation and The Silent Pulse

"The question of Western medicine regarding the wholeness or healthiness of the shamanistic personality must be put to rest in the presence of such healers as Eduardo."
—Charles Poncé, author of Kabbalah: An Introduction and Director of the Labyrinthos Foundation
