AbstractThis early monograph is part ethnography and part autobiography. It covers material culture, settlement patterns, subsistence, and religion, as well as harrowing traveler anecdotes. Although the author seems biased against local beliefs and practices, he is sympathetic to their general condition and character. Grubb was in the field before Hawtrey, who published his account a decade earlier, and it is unclear who may have borrowed from whom.
