Quedan veinte mil sitios arqueológicos, y seis millones de indios que hablan cincuenta lenguas tan apartadas entre sí como el chino del español. Dediqué veinte años al estudio de los indios y escribí cinco libros voluminosos, parte de ellos traducidos a varios idiomas. Son muy pocos los que pueden leerlos completos y por ello decidimos hacer los angeles presente antología”: Fernando Benítez. El presente volumen reúne ocho de los más importantes ensayos de Fernando Benítez sobre los indios de México: los que se refieren a los huicholes, los tarahumaras, los tepehuanes y nahuas, los coras, los otomíes, los tzeltales, los tzotziles, los mixtecos y los mazatecos.
