Back cover copy

Unique in ethnography, Nurturing Doubt documents the transforming effects of field experiences on a young Mennonite who went to Argentina to work with the Toba, first as a missionary and later as an anthropologist. With keen insight Elmer Miller probes the documents-diaries, field journals, and letters of both his lives, revealing as he does the ways in which his perceptions of the Toba-and theirs of him-changed when his role changed.show more

Review quote

"An absorbing and enlightening account of a life of questioning that enhanced both growth and knowledge; of a deeply interesting professional career; and of engagement with Toba people and Toba life." -- Choiceshow more
