Summary "An international and multidisciplinary collection on the Huichol. Chapters on contemporary life include the discussion of gender, religion, healing and ceremonial practices, peyotism, and cultural change. Particularly interesting are Nahmad Sitton's piece on Huichol religion and the Mexican State; Shaefer's chapter on peyotism and meaning; and the conclusions co-authored by Furst and Schaefer that offers an excellent illustration of the challenges and dynamism of Huichol contemporary life"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
