about this book

With an Introduction by B. Malinkowski, Facing Mount Kenya is a central document of the highest distinction in anthrolopological 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, as as precise as they are compassionate.
