This book and card set is a classic tool to become acquainted with your animal totems and guides. The authors state in the Introductions that they have received these teaching from many elders in the Choctaw, Lakota, Seneca, Aztec, Yaqui, Cheyenne, Cherokee, Iroquois and Mayan traditions. They call the cards (and book) both a divination tool and a way to become more connected to our intuition. There is information about what "medicine" means in the Native American traditions, about power and totem animals, about the Medicine Wheel and the Medicine Shield. They give 4 different spreads. Then each of the 44 different animals (birds...fish...insects...amphibians...) have their own 2-3 page sections with wonderfully astute information. Personally whenever I have consulted my cards, they have be right on reflecting wisdom onto my current situation. I have owned and used these cards for 20 years now. Mine are not up for swap, sorry. But I would highly recommend them!

I've found that working with Tarot cards isn't my thing, i get them i just don't like how they seem to work for me.

That being said i love this Deck, it's not tarot and it "speaks" to me differently. The book is well written and i reference it even though I don't really need it anymore, just for the legends set up with each particular animal/card.

This book has the Cards with them, and is in SUPER shape. Were quite expensive. Giving this away is quite the sacrifice....Ant
