"A much needed book. It not only provides the proper orientation to its material, but its humanistic approach is more perceptive and illuminating than technical scholarship." ―Theodore H. Gaster, Columbia University

The first part of the book emphasizes the practical and includes Isaac Tens's "Career of the Medicine Man".

In addition to an introductory essay on the Indian's stance towards reality, the editors have contributed chapters entitled "The Clown's Way" and "An American Indian View of Death".
