Jack Montgomery Spoke About American Shamans

Jack MontgomeryWKU Libraries’ Kentucky Live! presented Jack Montgomery about his new book American Shamans: Traditional Healers & the Folk-Magic Tradition at Barnes and Noble on the evening of December 4, 2008.

Magical healings, ghostly encounters, and alternate realities have been a part of American society since the first colonial settlements. In his book, Jack Montgomery provides ample historical and personal material to reveal a largely hidden world, primarily influenced by African, Celtic and German roots, that still exists today.
