A dramatic story of self discovery, highly unusual in circumstances and content, is told by a scientist who visited the Philippine pygmies to find out whether there was a universal man. He came to the Negritos, Ilongot, Ifuago, Bontoc and other groups armed with a battery of tests -- from the Goodenough Draw-A-Man test to an Emotional Response Test. As he studied the relation of the tribes to the world about them in their fantasies and their shamanism, his own spirit become involved. He felt the love magic of a Negrito Shamaness who brought him to beautiful Olan; he saved his own life, when the headhunters who needed a sacrifice to pay for the rice harvest danced for his death, by exhibiting his own form of song and dance; as an Ifuago priest took on the spirit of his gods, he too felt their presence. In an astounding brush with death, as he goes through a whirlpool, he experiences his own therapy, a mixture of those he has studied and of his Western background. A fascinating and unique study of psychotherapy and religion in simple societies with applications for modern Western man which will have a very special market.
