Summary 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.
