Idioms of Sami Health and Healing free pdf The Sami-indigenous people of northernmost Europe-have relied on traditional healing methods over generations. This pioneering volume documents, in accessible language, local healing traditions and demonstrates the effectiveness of using the resources local communities can provide.
