By Douglas Gillette

ShamanThe Shaman's Secret is the most comprehensive documentation yet of the extraordinary spiritual forces that governed life for the ancient Maya.

As Gillette deciphers sacred artwork, hieroglyphics, myths, and artifacts, he shows how entire cities mysteriously disappeared into enveloping jungles, taking with them a vast, untapped treasure of the human spirit.
