    1. One of the best books I ve ever read It was hard to put it down This is the second book in a trilogy, and I intend to read them all The book tells the story of a doctor during the Black Hawk wars and Civil War The descriptions of medical practices, homesteading, army prison camps, etc are very well researched and woven into the story beautifully If you love historic novels, this is a must read.



    2. There s something weird about Gordon s novels, they sit on the shelf, looking hefty and imposing It takes me forever to start one, but once I do, I steam through, luxuriating in every page.I loved The Physician with a passion, and this is another great book by the same author At times events seem similar to those in the first book, but this novel holds its own as well I found the small moments of humor very good indeed, and also loved the pioneer elements, as that s one of my favorite things to [...]


    3. As other reviewers have noted, this book takes place over 800 years after The Physician As the novel begins, Dr Robert Judson Cole Rob J flees from his native Scotland for the New Word in the mid 1800 s He begins his medical career in Boston working with Dr Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr and the indigent, immigrant population Soon thereafter, Rob J leaves Boston to see the West He settles in Holden s Crossing, Illinois and establishes his medical practice While in Holden s Crossing, he befriends a gr [...]


    4. This is the second of a trilogy What a great storyteller author Noah Gordon is The story begins with the death of Rob J Cole, who is The Physician the first book Shaman is the younger of the two sons, and this book is about him He is deaf due to a childhood illness He wants to become a doctor like his father was His father says that can never happen because he is deaf, but he is determined He applies at just about every medical school there is and is finally accepted, with conditions Knowing he [...]


    5. Oooo This, the second book in Gordon s Cole Trilogy is even better than the first, The Physician There is an 800 year time lapse between the two books so you don t need to read the first book in order to appreciate Shaman Maybe I enjoyed Shaman so much because it covers a period of U.S history that I m familiar with Shaman is the son of Rob J Cole, who immigrated from Scotland When he dies we learn of his life through diaries which Shaman finds There is much interesting data about early medicine [...]


    6. This was a wonderful book to read Two amaizing and unforgetable characters, descendant from that first Rob J Cole we meet at The Physician, shared his same name and the passion for medicine They both follow they heart and believes Robert J Cole father is forced to leave his natal Scotland and travel to the new world for political reassons, there he travels to Boston fist and then to the west, where he get in touch with a native american tribeAnd then there was Chaman Robert Jefferson Cole, the s [...]


    7. Shaman is the second book in the trilogy of Noah Gordon about the Cole Family and their narrow relationship with medicine It s a good book that mixes adventure, epic drama, history and above all, good stories about the world of medicine It s a novel of fluent reading that makes you wanting to continue with the third part of the trilogy, that for sure won t disappoint you Spanish version Shaman es el segundo libro de la trilog a de Noah Gordon sobre la familia Cole y su estrecha relaci n con la m [...]


    8. The second of the trilogy, I started this one directly on the heals of the The Physcian I was startled at first by the jump in time, but realized immediately that it s becuase there was another medical moment to be recorded Gordon has a talent for drawing the time The characters are real, but the element that makes his books truly remarkable i s the history The first person point of view on the situations and morays of the past I loved it and moved DIRECTLY onto the third.


    9. If this is historical fiction, so is Gunsmoke I think watch in Dr.Quinn Medicine woman, Little House on the Prairie or Bonanza would be a better use of time, I m sure you could find similar story lines I don t look to TV for intellectual depth and often prefer shows that don t require much brain activity but I like books with depth According to this book, American soil must be bad for the soul Only recent immigrants should apply for sainthood Funny, the book points out Anti Catholicism and Anti [...]


    10. Ausgezeichnete Fortsetzung von Der Medicus Mit diesem Buch ist Noah Gordon ein wirklich gro er Wurf gelungen War der Medicus schon recht ansprechend, so hat er hier das Thema nochmals aufgegriffen und eine noch bessere Fortsetzung geschrieben.Der Roman spielt in der ersten H lfte des 19 Jahrhunderts Ein Nachfahre des im Medicus beschriebenen Rob J Cole verfasst ein Pamphlet gegen die englische Krone und muss daher seine Heimat Schottland verlassen Er ist wie viele aus seiner Familie mit der Gabe [...]


    11. Desde un principio le tom un especial cari o al libro El M dico, primera entrega de la trilog a de Noah Gordon Por ello, compr apresurada esta segunda parte que, a pesar un par de siglos despu s, mantiene una interesante armon a con el estilo del libro anterior En un principio no me estaba gustando demasiado el libro Me result largo de leer no s lo por la extensi n de la obra, sino tambi n por lo densa view spoiler La muerte de Makwa es explicada muy pronto en el libro, por lo que me qued ante l [...]


    12. Finally finished this marathon of a book It is meticulously researched, as is typical of Noah Gordon, but I didn t find this book as accessible and readable as The Physician Many of the links with the Cole family were there, and the role of the doctor at war was beautifully portrayed, with all of the clinical, moral and ethical dilemmas graphically demonstrated.My main difficulty is that the writing style was very clunky, and the book is just too long, with a great deal of time spent on Dr Cole [...]


    13. Aunque me ha gustado menos que El m dico, he disfrutado bastante con esta nueva aventura de dos m dicos Cole contada por Noah Gordon Me encantan los autores que se documentan hasta la saciedad para escribir sus novelas, haciendo que tareas rutinarias del siglo pasado cobren vida en tu imaginaci n hasta el ltimo detalle Lo nico que no me ha gustado demasiado de este libro ha sido la parte en la que Rob J Cole relata todas sus experiencias como m dico del ej rcito durante la Guerra de Secesi n, qu [...]



    14. This is the second book of a trilogy about the Cole family One thing that s unusual is that the main characters in this book are several generations removed from Rob J in the first book of the series, The Physician I really love how this author writes He pretty much ropes you in within the first couple of pages of the book and just never lets you go And it s not that there is lots of action in this book to interest the reader But the author makes you care about the characters from the start It i [...]

    16. I have to say I m quite disappointed with the book I expected much after having read The Physician and having heard that the second book of the trilogy is even better What I loved about the first book was that it absolutely captured me and pulled me into the story, with a plot thrilling and educating, yet realistic and credible This time the story is credible too, no doubt, but it isn t half as thrilling or even interesting Is it, because I am European and thus don t feel as linked to Shaman s [...]


    17. Loved all three books The Physician my favorite.The Physician book one Amazing story line with characters to love and hate The main character was so realistic and likable The descriptions of the times and places were very detailed and it was easy to put yourself there I loved the progression of the story Very well written I would highly recommend.Shaman book two Again, excellent story line I did enjoy book one than the second Very well written Exciting characters Interesting time periods with v [...]


    18. I read The Physician so many years ago, and finally got to read Shaman this week Finally I truly enjoyed this book, and despite the many pages soared through My edition is actually epub from the NYPL, so Adobe said it was 600 pages I gave this book 5 stars, but would like to have said 4.75 I understand that an author wants to make his story a likable story and that the protagonist ends up in a good place in life by the end Perhaps it s an author s job to give us happily ever after , or less Thi [...]


    19. Shaman is the sequel to the Physician by Noah Gordon But it is an unusual type of sequel 800 years pass between the first and the second book One of the descendants of Rob Cole in the first book is now a physician in Boston and then the frontier of Illinois in the 1850 s The physician in this book is also named Rob Cole and he names his son, Rob Cole The son is nicknamed Shaman by a native American who serves as the elder Rob Cole s nurse homeopathic healer This book is Dances with Wolves combin [...]


    20. Cuando decid leer el libro Chaman, el segundo libro de la trilog a de la familia Cole me imaginaba una secuela en donde continuaba en el siglo XI y continuaba la historia tal vez con los hijos del Dr Cole establecidos en Escocia mi sorpresa es que la historia brinca hasta el siglo XIX con un descendiente del Dr Cole llamado tambi n Robert J Cole que llega de Escocia a los Estados Unidos el libro abarca tanto la vida del Dr proveniente de Escocia como posteriormente de su hijo que a pesar de las [...]


    21. Muy buen libro, comenc a leerlo con pocas expectativas gracias comentarios de la persona que me lo proporcion , pero a lo largo de la lectura me fue sorprendiendo y termin con un muy buen sabor de boca La descripci n hist rica que hace es muy buena ya que te transporta al mundo de los conquistadores del oeste, de los indios, de la guerra de cecesi n Pero lo que m s me agrad fue la descripci n se la situaci n de la sordera que hizo, me pareci muy fiel y acertada, adem s de que muchas de las barre [...]


    22. I ve not yet read the first The Physician as it is in a long wait list I thoroughly enjoyed Shaman, finding it believable in every aspect Personally, my people followed this same route from Scotland to the hardships of pioneering life in Illinois, then beyond Starving, wandering Native Americans were still evident in these areas as late as 1890 s according to family records therefore, I find the story line factual After reading only two books by Noah Gordon I m fast becoming hooked on his writin [...]


    23. Se me ha hecho un poco pesado desde luego m s que El m dico , sobre todo la parte de la guerra Es una buena novela, muy bien documentada, y entretenida pero a veces da la impresi n de que se extend a sin raz n aparente en algunas partes.No es mala, pero me gust m s El m dico


    24. Contin a la saga Cole de los m dicos escoceses Ahora la disidencia pol tica empujar a Rob a emigrar a Estados Unidos, donde podr reiniciar su vida Las pr cticas m dicas europeas, influidad por el conocimiento rbe, chocar n con el saber tradicional de las tribus indias.


    25. Not quite as good as the Physician, but a good read nonetheless The novel takes place in the Midwest around the Civil War and is about future generations of the original Cole family found in the first book The Physician.


    26. The saga continuesThe author weaves together medical history, history of the period and the Cole family s life story beautifully.I m looking forward to reading the third book.


    27. Like the first book in this trilogy I struggled between a four and five star rating I finally decided on four, only giving points off,again, for a little bit of unbelievable situations That being said, I highly recommend this book as well This book continues with the family in The Physician but many centuries later This is set before and after the Civil War Robert Cole struggles with his conscience as well as his love on a woman who is in many ways his opposite For example, he is agnostic leanin [...]
