Sangoma - James Hall
The subtitle of this book is My Odyssey into the Spirit World of Africa and it's just that - an American man's experiences training to become a sangoma, a spiritual healer, in Africa. An unusual story to be sure, and I enjoyed hearing about this aspect of Swazi culture, which I admit I know nothing about. Having never been to Africa it seems like a fascinating place.
