"This is one of the more fascinating travel works I have read on Mexico, and I have read many. It provides an important addition to the scanty literature on the Tarahumara and enriches the material available on this important group. I would also think this book would be fascinating to the general reader." Joseph W. Whitecotton, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, University of Oklahoma
