From the Back Cover:

Masked Gods is a vast book, a challenging and profoundly original account of the history, legends, and ceremonialism of the Navaho [sic] and Pueblo Indians of the Southwest. Following a brief but vivid history of the two tribes through the centuries of conquest, the book turns inward to the meaning of Indian legends and rituals-Navaho sings, Pueblo dances, Zuni kachina ceremonies. Enduring still, these rituals and ceremonies express a view of life, of man's place in the creation, which is compared with Taoism and Buddhism-and with the aggressive individualism of the Western world.
