KIRKUS REVIEW

Duee Goba, a grandson of the chief, lives in the village of Bonjebli in the Liberian jungle. Here in a series of handsome black and white photographs, Warren Schloat depicts his daily life and the important activities of the community. What better way to learn geography and contemporary civilization than in the context of a true story. Except to a botanist, the uses of the great African palm would be mighty dull reading. But in recognizing its significance in the economy of Duee's village, its influence on Duee's life, an isolated fact takes on real meaning. The text captions the photographs in a sensible approach to life in other lands.
