Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The stories of ten women healers form the core of this provocative journey into cultural heaing methods utilized by women. In a truly grass-roots project, the authors take the reader along to listen to the voices of Native American medicine women, Southwest Hispanic curanderas, and women physicians as they describe their healing paths.

This book will fascinate anyone interested in the relationship between illness and healing-medical practitioners and historians, patients, anthropologists, feminists, physchologists, psychiatrists, theologians, sociologists, folklorists, and others who seek understanding about our relationship to the forces of both illness and healing.

Book News Annotation:

Paper edition of the 1989 original of which we wrote: Portraits of 10 women healers working in Native American, Hispanic, and AMA traditions. Based primarily on interviews with the subjects. Compares the differences and similarities of philosophical approach, spiritual and emotional elements, techniques, and relationships to patients and communities. An advocacy for "alternative" medicine rather than a rigorous scientific study.
