From School Library Journal: YA Cheneviere has spent his life living among more than 200 primitive peoples throughout the world, learning their ways, and often being adopted by them. This book provides photographic access to 20 of his ``families.'' He uses the myth of the Great Serpent to tie together elements of many widespread tribal legends as a unifying force in this collection of very readable essays which depict the varied lifestyles of ancient man as he lives today. Cheneviere ranges from the Medipa of New Guinea to the Mursi of Ethiopia to the Dogon of Mali and Ifugao of the Philippines. He describes their probable forebearers, their spiritual practices, and their lifestyles to bring awareness of ancient ways in the modern world through photography, description, and myth. Few of these tribes will survive into the next century; a record such as this is important to the education of youth who must deal with questions of global ecology.
