This book gives a good basic description of life in this nomadic tribe. There is not a lot of detail, however, about the day-to-day happenings. The focus is on the pagan worship and who's next in line. I would have preferred more detail about life within the tribes-it would have flowed better for me. I was not impressed with the flow of Kate Seredy's writing in this book.

For generations the tribes of Huns and Magyars had moved relentlessly westward, obeying the voices of thier pagan gods, wich compelled them to follow the elusive white stag to their promised homeland. They swept Europe, all the while pursuing their vision of the stag. Thier leader was called Attila, and the land Hungary. Here is the epic story of their tribal migration and their fierce leader-known to us even today.
