"Medicine Woman has to do with the meaning of life, the role of women, and the wrestling of power away form the forces of evil that hold it." -- Los Angeles Times
"Medicine Woman is the autobiographical account of a woman's search for identity in a Native American culture... What begins as a search for a Native American marriage basket becomes Lynn Andrews' often terrifying journey into the wilderness of Manitoba, where inexplicable events and dangerous encounters serve as testing grounds for Lynn's spiritual journey... In the light of this odyssey, one wonders if Carlos Castaneda and Lynn Andrews have not initiated a new genre of contemporary literature: Visionary Autobiography" -- San Francisco Review of Books
"A statement of what is called for and possible in all of us." -- Sojourner
"First Class... A remarkable adventure into the world of the spirit." -- San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
"There is much wisdom here... What sometimes appears as madness may contain its own wisdom; and what may sometimes sound like wisdom may be madness. It is precisely this intricate balance that the medicine woman must learn to keep." -- Santa Fe Reporter
