Synopsis: "Sketches the history and culture of the Tucson area Yaqui and contains case studies of a number of the informants. What constituted 'Yaquiness' in Pascua was mainly a common language, a shared historical tradition, and an aberrant form of Catholic Christianity laced with Yaqui concepts. This clearly and concisely written book is very important in its own terms as an early example of the use of life histories in ethnology and as a significant contribution to Yaqui studies."—Choice

"Spicer's methodology included biography as a means to better understand Yaqui behaviors, choices, and attitudes about others. . . . Marvelously written and should benefit a diverse readership."—Explorations in Sights and Sounds

From the Inside Flap: Edward H. Spicer was associated for many years with the Yaqui Indians of both Arizona and Sonora and came to be known as the leading scholarly authority on those people. People of Pascua, the second book he wrote about the Yaquis, presents sixteen life histories collected early in his research that tell what it meant to be a Native American and poor in the southwestern United States during the Great Depression.
