Explores the social, cultural, and policy issues involved as the Indian Bureau and other federal agencies attempted to introduce Western medicine to the Navajo. Although he focuses on federal policy as seen through the eyes of the government doctors, the author also discusses Navajo reaction to these efforts, mainly reflected in the refusal to avail themselves of services. The change in federal policy in the 1930s towards greater acceptance of traditional healers is also treated. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
