Description

"This long-awaited book is one of the first works solely devoted to the medical knowledge of California Indians. It will satisfy museum visitors, as well as students of Chumash culture, who frequently ask questions regarding traditional medicinal practices. The growing literature regarding Chumash ethnography will be enriched by this contribution."
John R. Johnson, curator of anthropology at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History
