{4.5/5} “Bad things don’t just grow on one path, they’re everywhere. So don’t blame yourself when those things happen. Don’t let yesterday take up much of today.””

Shaman by Kim Stanley Robinson, released in 2013

Loon is in training to become the next shaman. Before that he has to go on his wander — starting out naked and taking nothing with him, he must survive on his own for days. This is an amazing story of a time thousands of years ago when all humans were hunter-gatherers. It contains truths that are relevant today.

I previously reviewed Robinson’s novel 2312.
