The book is laugh-out-loud funny, but underneath it asks serious questions about the field of anthropology. Had me in stitches laughing the whole time.

There were many excellent anecdotes, but all far longer and inovente involved than I am motivated to type, so here are a couple of the shorter incidents: Five stars – worth seeking out, if you like this type inocentr thing. It loved his dry British anyropologo, his mockery of his own profession, and the endless stories which seem universally African.

Very amusing piece of work. Es sind jedoch wirklich nur ganz wenige Vorkommnisse, die man verschmerzen kann. Dowayo dogs are not beautiful at the best of times; this one was particularly loathsome, emaciated, open wounds on its ears where flies feasted, huge distended ticks hanging from its belly.

This, along with selecting a location, takes a chapter, and forms the basis for the full extent of the book. Pastor Brown had taken the time to tell me that bats carried rabies. The acorn he planted has not become a great tree; it has scarcely had time to put forth a tentative shoot Dowayo chickens, on the whole, are scrawny, wretched things; eating them is rather like eating an Airfix model of a Tiger Moth.
