Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This source, by an American Presbyterian missionary, is
based on 15 years of residence among the Zulu. His observations cover such topics as
clothing, houses, occupations, etc.; law and government; superstitions, etc.; marriage
customs; character; history of American and European missions; geology; flora and fauna.
Although Grout is given to occasional flights of missionary fervor, it does not seem to
have seriously affected his observations.
