Description
"This vivid portrayal of east Africa remains as fresh and revelatory now as on the day it was first published in 1972. Peter Matthiessen exquisitely combines nature and travel writing to portray the sights, scenes, and people he observed firsthand in several trips over the course of a dozen years. From the daily lives of wild herdsmen and drama of predator kills to the field biologists investigating wild creatures and the anthropologists seeking humanity's origins in the Rift Valley, The Tree Where Man Was born is a classic of journalistic observation."--Back cover.
