Based on over twenty years' research at Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico, this honest and respectful book takes us into the heart of one Zuni family and allows us to witness the world through its members' eyes. We see the joys of love, marriage, and childbirth and the tragedies of illness, alcoholism, and death. We rediscover the Southwestern landscape, its plants and wildlife, in light of traditional Zuni teachings. The Beautiful and the Dangerous was originally published in 1992, and is now available only from UNM Press.


"Literature as fine and sensitive as the storytelling of Matthiessen and Chatwin."--George E. Marcus, professor of anthropology, Rice University


"Deftly weaves together a range of life-story narratives, legends, myths, and male and female voices. . . . The writing sparkles with the visual acuity of a painter's eye, and it has a bold honesty about the experience of being in the field, achieving an integration of image and text that is totally new to ethnography."--Ruth Behar, professor of anthropology, University of Michigan
