Maybe you want to buy it directly from a store and not Joe Schmoe in his dorm room no 3rd party , or maybe you don't even care that the book fell out of an airplane, was run over by a car, and fell in a fishtank, you just want the absolute lowest price cheapest used or new. In this unique study, Hampton describes the complete cultural inventory of both secular and sacred stones, ranging from utilitarian stone tools and profane symbolic stones through symbolic spirit stones, power stones with multiple functions, and medicinal power stone tools, as they were being used in the culture of this long-isolated people. Die Einzellaienhelferin für entlassene psychotisch Kranke, Frau M. Hampton examines the complexities of the Highlanders' unseen spirit world and its symbiotic relationship with the world of the seen. While exceedingly rare on any given archaeological site, engraved stone artefacts have nonetheless been reported from sites covering a range of periods and regions across the world. After some thirty years of accumulated experience with diverse indigenous people in remote areas on three continents, Bud has published five anthropological-archaeological articles.
