About this Item

First published in 1981, this book is the second printing from 1982, 204 pages, illustrated. "This is the first book to describe Mexican American folk medicine from an insider's point of view. Curanderismo is an important health resource for Mexican Americans, to whom the title Curandero represents a healer who is part of a historicallly and culturally important health care system. This is an enthnography of the healing theories and practices of curanderos in Mexican American communities in the United States. It describes how the healers perceive health and illness within their own theoretical framework, how they use that perspective to diagnose and cure both natural and supernatural diseases."
