Facing Mount Kenya: The Tribal Life of the Gikuyu

by

Facing Mount Kenya: The Tribal Life of the Gikuyu Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Facing Mount Kenya' is a central document of the highest distinction in anthropological literature, an invaluable key to the structure of African society and the nature of the African mind. 'Facing Mount Kenya' is not only a formal study of life and death, work and play, sex and the family in one of the greatest tribes of contemporary Africa, but a work of considerable literary merit. The very sight and sound of Kikuyu tribal life presented here are at once comprehensive and intimate, and as precise as they are compassionate.
