Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
`A most interesting anthropological study of the Maria tribe which is distinguished by the bison-horn ornaments worn by the men at their marriage dances.'

Times Literary Supplement

`Mr Elwin describes these simple and lovable people well ... Deeply interesting is the explanation Mr Elwin suggests for the prevalence of crime due to emotional distress among the Maria.'

New Statesman and Nation

`Few books would furnish better material for a real understanding of the life of the aborigines ... There is not a single dull page.'

Journal of the Gujarat Research Society
