The Forest People is an astonishingly intimate and life-enhancing account of a hunter-gatherer tribe living in harmony with nature -- and an all-time classic of anthropology. For three years, Colin Turnbull lived with an isolated group of Pygmies deep in the forest of the African Congo, experiencing their daily life first-hand. He attended their hunting parties and initiation ceremonies, witnessed their music and their rituals, observed their quarrels and love affairs. He documented them as an anthropologist but was accepted among them as a friend. A ground-breaking work in its time, The Forest People made him one of the most famous intellectuals of the 1960s and 1970s. It remains a transporting account of an earthly paradise and of a legendary and fascinating people. With a new foreword by Horatio Clare.

The red-headed woodpecker, the squirrel, the little bat that wouldn't go to bed, the haughty ground hog, the wild turkeys and other people of the wild wood. "An utterly delightful book for the little folk who begin so soon to be interested in the creatures of the farmyard....All the tremendously interesting animals that Mrs. Pierson tells about in this charming book, combining bits of their natural history with fascinating stories....Among the most successful things of the kind that have been written for the nursery." -The Interior "The stories are perfectly charming....One could not give a child a better present." -Queen "A charming and pretty book for young children. It will help them to observe, and it will also help them to think. Nearly every story ends with something unsaid, which the nursery people are to think out for themselves." -Church Standard "A charming publication, suitable for young readers." -Morning Post "These charming stories of field life will delight many a child of kindergarten age; and it is safe to say that older brothers and sisters will also want to claim a share in them." -Christian Register "The forest people in furs and feathers live in most neighborly relations, and hold conversations which reveal how very like they are to human beings." -The Outlook "'The secret of Mrs. Pierson's popularity,' say her publishers, 'lies in the fact that what she teaches is conveyed so unobtrusively and naturally that the child does not feel that against his will he is being supplied with facts and morals in story form.'" -John W. Dasef, "History of Montcalm County, Michigan "I declare I really feel tempted to adopt or borrow a nice little girl of six or seven, just for the pleasure of reading this perfect book to her while she snuggles down in my lap." -Kate Sanborn "These stories will delight the grown people who read them aloud, and will equally charm the little listeners. There is the best kind of teaching, the highest kind of moral, in the little tales, and something without a name that makes the listener want to be kind and truthful and clean." -Sunday School Times "We heartily recommend the book for its thoroughly healthy tone, far better adapted to a sweet and simple childhood than much of the rather stimulating juvenile literature of the day. -New York Commercial Advertiser CONTENTS MR.
