Item description for Lejana África (Vanishing Africa, Spanish Edition) by Gianni Giansanti...
This book celebrates the eternal beauty and mystery of Africa by showcasing its remotest regions and most obscure inhabitants. Here are fascinating peoples that have remained isolated for centuries, retaining their ancient cultures and customs intact to the present day. The spectacular plumage of Hamar men, the totem worship of the Konsos, warrior groups and cults of beauty, and a tribe that uses poems and songs to help draw water from parched earth --- all are on view in this breathtaking tribute to a world both vanished and present.
