THE HIMBA 13 Sept. 2009
By Preston Reeves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
where the fire speaks:
This book both with text and photography does an excellent job in depicting the life and possible fate of the Himba. I found the book to be a good representation of reality. Shortly before reading the book I visited a Himba village and the problems mentioned by our guide were also outlined in this book.
I recommend this little book to anyone interested in the native peoples of Africa.
