In the context of the oral literature of the O'odham people (aka the Pima-Papago) of southern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico, Bahr (emeritus, anthropology, Arizona State U. at Tempe) presents his translation and interpretation of versions of a ceremonial rain speech--one extinct, one still in use--featuring mockingbirds. He also examines origin stories behind the use of saguaro cactus wine in ceremonies, banned at times by the US government. The volume includes b&w photos, stories by the Winnebago and Jicarilla Apache for comparison, and a summary table of the O'odham orations discussed including comments.
