"Put this book at the top of your list of essential reading about indigenous cultures and healing practices of the Americas. Beautifully written and researched, Professor Gonzales' book is enriched by her accounts of personal experience with red medicine and the resurgence of indigenous women in the role of healers." --Leslie Marmon Silko"It is often difficult to write academically about a subject that is so ethereal, but Patrisia Gonzales manages to blend the scholarly and personal sides of her topic effortlessly." --AlterNative

"Through Indigenous knowledge and teachings, which are rooted in Spiderwoman Knowledge, Gonzales presents a personal/communal and scholarly account that challenges Western ways of knowing and de-Indianization. As a study that privileges Indigenous knowledge, Gonzales's writing reflects that of ceremony. Thus, the book is itself poetically written and reflects the cyclic order of life."--
American Indian Quarterly
"Gonzales does an outstanding job negotiating the current literature in several related fields. Her breadth and depth of research is absolutely impressive. This book is a wonderful and rich tapestry of history woven with narratives and storytelling." --Elisa Facio, author of Understanding Older Chicanas: Sociological and Public Policy Perspectives
