The life story of Africa’s premier traditional healer

Vusumazulu Credo Mutwa tells the story of his life as an artist, political activist, and healer. Mutwa, the most famous African traditional healer of the 20th century, shares the wisdom of Africa’s traditional sangomas and healers in this beautiful volume, which includes an audio CD that captures the prayers, sacred songs, and sounds of the culture. In addition to his works as a healer and champion of native South Africans and their culture, Mutwa is an outspoken artist and critic best known for his sculpture and paintings. Includes audio CD.

“Each book stands alone, but [the series] provides a whole larger than the sum of the parts . . . Breathtaking.” —Milton Erickson Foundation Newsletter
