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.

Praise For…

The reader is instantly charmed by her warm humanity on the one hand, and the lyrical quality of her writing on the other.
