I read a number of ethnographical research - mostly as a Ph.D. student. I may be alone of this, but my general impression is... few were worthwhile to read. My lack of appreciation for ethnography and other forms of qualitative analysis may be attributed to my background in quantitative methods. Perhaps I just don't get it. Unlike my past experience in reading such work, I DID appreciate the craftsmanship found within Spivey's book. His writing is remarkably good for this type of work. He has clear and specific goals that can be generalized and employed as examples for instruction of graduates and undergraduates students.
Native American students who are seeking degrees in the social sciences will find this book particularly useful. In addition to the substance Spivey provides, his book offers a good research model that will enable others to effectively apply ethnography to the study of other Native American traditions.
All in all, Spivey does a fine job. I strongly recommend this book for social science students and professors.
