A pioneering anthropologist who closely studied little-known Indian tribes, Verrier Elwin's writings provide insight into Indian tribal life, art, and culture. The essays in this collection discuss his experiences in India, Indian tribes, Muria and their ghotul, Maria murder and suicide, art, folksongs, myths, and Nagaland. Nineteen black and white photographs, the majority taken by Elwin, are also included.
