About the Author:

After teaching at Harvard Richard Katz is presently a Professor at the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College, an Indian-controlled college in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Review:

At a time when many voices rightly urge us to move toward a more holistic approach to medicine, healing and society itself, it is fascinating and valuable to read this thoughtful, eyewitness account of a culture which has always been holistic. This is a book not just for anthropologists or psychologists, but for a much wider readership. It is vivid and colorful. (Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School)

A brilliant sociological analysis of how the form and function of ritual healing are shaped by the Kung social structure. (Commonweal)

Anyone interested in the transpersonal dimensions of healing will quickly recognize the importance of this book. Richard Katz has produced a compelling narrative of his three-month stay among a nomadic tribe of the Kalahari desert. (Journal of Transpersonal Psychology)
