"An excellent account of Apache philosophy as seen through their ceremonies." -- Choice

"An excellent discussion of the relationship between ethnoastronomy and the base metaphor in the Apache world view." -- New Mexico Historical Review --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

The product of more than fifteen years contact and life with the Mescalero people in southern New Mexico, Living Life's Circle is one of the first works devoted to the emergent new interdiscipline of ethnoastronomy, the study of how the sky and its movements form "templates" for life in particular cultures. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

It's in great condition. So much to learn in this well written study. I'm still learning and I've had this book many months. Thank you for taking in such unusual books and finding new homes for them.

Format: Paperback
This book focuses only on the affects of religon in an Apache society. The author, Claire Farrer, uses first person encounters to discribe rituals and the society surrounding them, not facts written fifty years ago. It is very lively and not at all what I expected for an Antro. class. I would reccomend this book to anyone who loves Native American history.
