The people Friedl studied are Shi'a Lurs living in the high
mountains of southwest Iran. This book focuses on children and compliments her earlier work
on women of the same village (see document no. 6.) The same families and names appear in
both books. Beginning with pregnancy and birth, she discusses the development of children
by age group and gender up to marriage. The material conveyed is personal and anecdotal,
covering children's behavior and play and their relationships with each other and adults.
She masterfully relates their thinking and feelings through acute observation and verbatim
conversation. Rural familial dynamics and gender relations are artfully
