Description

Former President Ronald Reagan called Eva Castellanoz a "national treasure" when he awarded her an NEA National Heritage Fellowship in 1987. Featured in "National Geographic," on "National Public Radio," and in numerous other publications, Castellanoz is celebrated as a folk artist, community activist, and "curandera," a traditional Mexican healer who uses a mind-body-spirit approach. During her 16-year friendship with Joanne Mulcahy, Castellanoz has revealed her life story as well as her "remedios" -- her remedies, both medicinal and metaphoric -- for life's maladies. Using her own observations and Castellanoz's stories, Mulcahy employs creative nonfiction and oral accounts to portray the life, beliefs, and practice of this remarkable woman. Anyone who has been healed by Eva Castellanoz has felt her power and wisdom. Anyone who reads this vivid portrait will come away feeling wiser and empowered by the story of this courageous and loving healer.
