KIRKUS REVIEW

The Bambuti or the Pygmies of the Ituri Forest thought to be among the oldest inhabitants of Africa are presented with all the human warmth and observation skill now expected from an anthropologist. We are given a full account of how these people live today as well as an appreciation of their deeper philosophy. The far reaching concepts of this study are valuable in the field of general human understanding as well as in getting to know a particular people. The appeal is further widened by the author's ability to tell a good story.
