Barbara Helen Miller received her PhD in Anthropology from Leiden University in The Netherlands. She is currently an independent scholar working in co-operation with Research Group Circumpolar Cultures. She lives in Hilversum, The Netherlands.

"The essays in this collection are both erudite and fascinating and represent much detailed research by a number of scholars in Sámi affairs. The book should appeal to a wide audience, from those interested in forms of non-traditional medicine and alternative ways of healing, to those interested in the Sámi and northern cultures in general, as well as in Shamanism and wizardry."
