Based on his year-long sojourn in Copper Canyon among the Raramuri/Tarahumara, award-winning journalist Jeff Biggers offers a rare look into the ways of one of the most resilient indigenous cultures in the Americas and the fascinating parade of travelers who have journeyed into the Sierra Madre over centuries. From African explorers, Bohemian friars, French poets, Boer and Russian commandos, and bewildered archaeologists to legendary characters including Antonin Artaud, B. Traven, Sergei Eisenstein, George Patton, Geronimo, and Pancho Villa, Biggers uncovers the remarkable treasures of the Sierra Madre.
