Summary
"This book is a multicontributor, multidisciplinary study of the Turkana, arising from a unique research project which ran for over 15 years, involving scientists from several different fields and institutions. It begins by describing the history of the Turkana people, and the dry savanna environment which they inhabit. The core of the book forms an analysis of the interactions between the Turkana people and their surroundings." "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
