Additional Book Details
In midwestern Bolivia stands Kaata, a sacred mountain. In a thousand-year tradition, a small community of men and women diviners has lived on its slopes. The symbolism of Mt. Kaata and its rituals provide deep insight into Andean society. With a wonderful blend of personal narrative, rich description, and theoretical presentation, the author sheds new light on the previously misinterpreted Bolivian Indians and their ancient Andean religion, rich in symbolism and ritual.
