This classic paperback is available once again--and exclusively--from Harvard University Press.

This book is the story of the life of Nisa, a member of the !Kung tribe of hunter-gatherers from southern Africa's Kalahari desert. Told in her own words--earthy, emotional, vivid--to Marjorie Shostak, a Harvard anthropologist who succeeded, with Nisa's collaboration, in breaking through the immense barriers of language and culture, the story is a fascinating view of a remarkable woman.

"An unparalleled account of !Kung life [and] a revelation of the universality of women's experiences and feelings....Nisa helps us know what it means to be !Kung, to be a woman, and finally, to be human."--Choice
