"Wonderfully illuminating. . . . Parsons's work resonates strikingly to current trends in anthropology."--George W. Stocking, Jr., Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

"This is the biography of a woman so interesting and effective--a cross between Margaret Mead and Georgia O'Keeffe. . . . A nuanced portrait of this vivid woman."--Tanya Luhrmann, New York Times Book Review

"A marvelous new book about the life of Elsie Clews Parsons. . . . It's as though she is sitting on the next rock, a contemporary struggling with the same issues that confront women today: how to combine work, love and child-rearing into one life."--Abigail Trafford, Washington Post

"Parsons's splendid life and work continue to illuminate current puzzles about acculturation and diversity."--New Yorker
