1st ed.
The product of more than fifteen years contact and life with the Mescalero people in southern New Mexico, "Living Lifes 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. Urged by her friend and mentor, the remarkable singer and medicine man Bernard Second, to Pay attention, Farrer began to recognize a powerful primary metaphor based on acute astronomical observation and its direct relevance to all aspects of Mescalero life. Should be read by every student of culture.M. Jane Young
