It is rare to encounter a study of cross-cultural relations especially devoted to women. Within the constraints imposed by the extant records, Haskins' book represents a thoughtful and lucid study of a complex social world wherein the Tohono O'odham were constantly adapting to changing colonial hierarchies.
Haskins plays the day-to-day experiences of those women involved in the 'outing program' against assumptions about the responses of Native women to gendered acculturation politics. This book makes a real contribution to the twentieth-century history of American Indians.
