The absorbing chronicle of an expedition to the tribesmen of northern Uganda.

The Dodoth―a tall, handsome people of the northern tip of Uganda―are a tribe in transition. They are proud, often cruel, warrior herdsmen whose oldest members live just as they did hundreds of years ago, but whose younger members sometimes learn to read and write and have brushed against the modern world. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas accompanied three anthropological expeditions to Africa and lived among the Dodoth. She displays a remarkable ability to communicate with the tribespeople and describe their lives and customs.

About the Author:

Born in 1931, Elizabeth Marshall Thomas s is best known for her writings on animals. As she has said One of the things I learned from the Kalahari is that we are animals; the Bushmen lived as other savannah animals do, and we as a species come from that Old Way.
