First of all, this book could be categorized as anthropology, or autobiography, or alternative healing rather than as "religion". And should have been. That said, I read the whole thing, somewhat to my surprise. That it was written by a New Mexican puebloan (sort of) with a forward by his friend Robert Bly made me give it a try. I found it credible, and useful in a way with its focus on humans as village people and what we've lost.
