Lee, Gutkind, University of Pittsburgh professor and the "godfather" of creative nonfiction.  “We, The Shamans gives the writer all the tools necessary to write a compelling family history!”


Amy Peterson, Idaho State Journal. “With characteristic wit, honesty and humor, Atchley creates confidence in the most hesitant of writers.  He breaks down the process of writing a family history into such manageable parts that it ceases to be intimidating and is invigorating instead."


Elizabeth Laden, journalist, novelist, publisher of the Island Park News.  Use this straight forward book to tap your inner Shaman and possibly even win an award!"
