Medicine Women, Curanderas, and Women Doctors
Bobette Perrone, H. Henrietta Stockel, Victoria Krueger

Meet Tu Moonwalker, the Apache healer who follows her family's tradition of healing traced from the healer-warrior Cochise. Or Sabinita Herrara, a curandera and yerbera working beside modern physicians in a New Mexico clinic. These fascinating interviews with ten southwestern women healers cross three cultures-Native American, Hispanic, and Western. Their stories-how they came to be healers, the obstacles they faced, and the belief systems underlying their efforts-form a hard-to-find gem of a book for those interested in the contributions women make to medicine and healing.
