From the dust jacket- "One of the few tribes still living on their original land, the Papago Indians have assimilated many of the white man's ways while preserving some of their own customs, traditions, fears, and beliefs. Their knowledge of the white man's way of life has come to them, in great part, from their association with a remarkable woman, Goldie Richmond, who has lived among them for many years. 'Angel to the Papagos' is her story as well."
