[Healing Ways is] a general overview of the history of health care on the Navajo reservation, especially after World War II. We learn about the changes in health care services over these decades, often a study of politics wherein traditional Navajo medicine competed with western biomedicine, as well as rivalry that existed among Navajo healers. - The Journal of Arizona History "[Wade] Davies considers how the Navajos, or Dine, have adopted Western medicine over the past century without compromising their reliance on Navajo healing ceremonies and other forms of medical care." - SciTech Book News
