3.0 out of 5 stars tribes 5 Sep 2008
This book is good as far as it goes but it only illusrtates 15 "tribes" 1 in the Americas 6 in Africa 4 in Central Asia 3in Southeast Asia and 1 in Australia) when there are hundreds which exist in the present day.It would have been better if one continent had been concentrated on.However what is recorded is good ,the majority of photographsare excellent but a few are overexposed ,the text is adequate but a bit simple.Worth buying if you can get it cheaply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blends armchair travel with social examination 10 Mar 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
This blends armchair travel with social examination as author Prior provides a photographic documentation of 15 of the world' most individual tribes and ethic groups. This offers more visuals than most, providing close-ups of the people and their culture and offering insights into how tourism has changed some local customs and habits - and economics. The beautiful color photos make this an engaging title for both students of ethnic cultures and more casual browsers.
