“Fisher and Beckwith have spent 30 years photographing traditional African cultures. In this monumental volume, they turn their attention to the Dinka of southern Sudan and their majestic cattle.” ~New York Times Book Review

"This volume is luminous, not only for its pictures and presentation but also for the spirit in which it was made" ~American Photo

"Larry's Pick." ~Larry King Live Blog

The photography in this book is spectacular and the narrative is quite informative.

I'm the kind of guy that when folks come over... I can't help myself, I pick up a book and say, "Check this out."

The photography in this book is spectacular and the narrative is quite informative. I was saddened to learn of the changes in the 30 years between the authors' visits to this lovely, peaceful tribe, but was grateful that they had done such a beautiful job capturing the Dinka's lifestyle, culture and spirit before it all changed. This is an eye catching coffee table book to be savored over and over.

If you appreciate truly good books, great books... then this is one you should have in your library. I probably own somewhere upwards of 1000 books. This is one that I will pull off the shelf and look at over and over again. I'm the kind of guy that when folks come over... I can't help myself, I pick up a book and say, "Check this out." This is one of those books. Enough already...it's excellent.

I purchased this as part of my collection of Africa wildlife books. This book does not include wildlife, but as the title says, the people of the Dinka nation at work and play. Large thick book with excellent quality images. A great documentation of a lifestyel that is vanishing. I do want to note a warning: This book is realistic. As such there are many images of skin scaring and nudity that may offend some and may not be suitable to small children without some adult explanation.

I'm very glad I purchased this book.

My fault not to notice the format. It is too large for most bookcases and not easy to read because of the size. Pictures are beautiful.
