Summary: This book describes the life of the Tarahumara Indians living in the remote Copper Canyon country of Mexico. Crushed by the Spaniards in the 17th century, they retreated to distant canyons, where by isolating themselves, they were able to preserve their ancient culture. The author lived in a community of non-Christian Tarahumara, the most isolated members of the tribe. He discusses their close adaptation to the rugged environment, their unique curing ceremonies, the activities of the
ir shamans & sorcerers, the cooperative work parties which involve the institutionalized drinking of maize beer, & the 100 mile foot races for which the Tarahumara are famous. Travelers to Copper Canyon country can enrich their experience through this account of the natives of this spectacular area. Armchair travelers & long distance runners will also enjoy the book. It also makes an interesting supplementary text for college courses in the social sciences, cultural or social anthropology, Indians of Mesoamerica, cultural ecology, social organization, etc. For ordering information contact: ASILOMAR PRESS, P.O.
