day 14: a non-fiction book

this is about as non-fiction as it can get. imma get all anthropological up in here.

we're not allowed to refer to people as primitive anymore, margaret mead

this was the first book assigned in my first anthropology class during my first semester of college. it's an ethnographic study of colin turnbull's three years living with the pygmies in the congo in the 1950s. fascinating. i loved my professor, loved the book, loved the discovery channel, decided to major in anthropology. and for that, i say: eff you, forest people.

seriously though, good read. if you like ethnographies. neeeeerd.
