"This book is one of the most successful efforts so far to communicate the results of the anthropological study of one people to another people . . . the book is not addressed to the specialist in the study of culture . . . Without resort to dramatization or oversimplification, it should communicate to many kinds of readers the goals and viewpoints of the Navahos." This collaboration between an anthropologist and a medico-psychiatrist has been a fortunate one . . . This book teaches the salutary lesson that majority culture patterns are not self- justifying ... If we have achieved a greater mastery over the forces of nature than the Navahos, perhaps they have received more by experiencing the beauty and emotional values in nature than we.
