"A rich and multidimensional study. Hendrickson’s approach to the remarkably understudied pilgrimage site of Chimayó is nuanced with historical and contemporary perspectives. This case study greatly illuminates the history of New Mexico and will become a go-to book for students of religion in the borderlands."-Roberto Lint Sagarena,Middlebury College
"In this tenderly and often profoundly written book, Brett Hendrickson unpacks the overlapping claims to religious ownership that locals, church leaders, pilgrims, tourists, and sometimes scholars make to the Santuario de Chimayó, a place layered with experiences of miraculous dirt and shaped by the legacies of competing empires. This is a story that needed to be told, and Hendrickson shows how it resonates far beyond the borders and borderlands of New Mexico."-Tisa Wenger,author of We Have a Religion
