This is another deck - actually, one of the first - using Native American symbolism. The cards are keyed into the Native American concept of shamanism and the use of totem animals rather than fortune telling, and can be considered more of use in self-discovery than predictions. The artwork on these cards is really exceptional; the artist must really like and enjoy animals to be able to render them so faithfully in the rather limited layout available on these cards. There are even blank cards for use if your own personal totem animal is not one of those the 44 cards depict. There are also 6 different ways to lay out the cards in the handbook. However, the cards seem to be far more useful in meditation than in divination. The book is interesting to re-read off and on, and I enjoy just going through the cards and looking at them from time to time.
