Very interesting - from an author who feels an affinity with his subject - nice black and white photo section. Copyright 1962 so this is probably a look at a way of life that has changed.

Classic book for Anthro 101 classes. The book is very accessible and Turnbull clearly loves the people he is studying and living with and the forest where they live.
