Summary
  • "This narrative of frightening encounters with a charismatic deviant is a dramatic account of anthropological fieldwork. It culminates in the quest to discover what really happened when Jesus was killed in a police shootout some thirty years after Knab's last disturbing confrontation with him
  • The book not only provides an overview of the Huichol and the plight of Mesoamerican Indians but also sheds light on traditional religion, indigenous Catholicism, messianic cults, urbanization, and indigenous conflicts with the modern Mexican state."--Jacket
