This is a comprehensive study of the Tarahumaras of
northern Mexico. Part I, written by Zingg, describes Tarahumara material culture and
physical environment. Particular attention is paid to economic activities such as animal
husbandry, agriculture, and handicrafts. Native knowledge and utilization of wild animals
and plants are recorded in the chapters on ethnozoology and ethnobotany. Part II, written
by Bennett, is concerned with human relationships and social organization such as political
structure, kinship, marriage, birth and death, shamans, fiestas, religion, sports, and
social control. Part III, written by both authors, summarizes the descriptive data and
formulates certain conclusions regarding the historical trends and distributional patterns
of Tarahumara cultural traits.
