"This book represents an important record of Turkana life, and in particular of their unique interactions with the savannalands they inhabit. It should be of interest across a broad spectrum of social, biological, and medical anthropologists, demographers, and human ecologists, and will be particularly welcomed by anyone studying or working with pastoral nomadic populations in East Africa and elsewhere."--Jacket." ;
