Book Description University of Arizona Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 271 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.Back in Print! Sketches the history and culture of the Tucson area Yaqui and contains case studies of a number of the informants. What constituted Yaquiness in Pascua was mainly a common language, a shared historical tradition, and an aberrant form of Catholic Christianity laced with Yaqui concepts. This clearly and concisely written book is very important in its own terms as an early example of the use of life histories in ethnology and as a significant contribution to Yaqui studies. Choice Spicers methodology included biography as a means to better understand Yaqui behaviors, choices, and attitudes about others. . . . Marvelously written and should benefit a diverse readership. Explorations in Sights and Sounds This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780816509256
