Description - Meeting the Medicine Men by Charles Langley

Do North American Indian Medicine Men actually battle witchcraft, lift curses, and restore the sick to health? Former Evening Standard news editor, Charles Langley, a self-proclaimed man of science was skeptical about these claims until a chance meeting with a young Navajo Indian propelled him out of his middle-class London life and into the Indian reservations of New Mexico and Arizona, where Medicine Men retain a God-like status.

This is Langley's incredible story of a year spent immersed in the traditional healing rituals of the Medicine Men and the startling and larger than life characters he meets along the way.
