The Baiga

London, John Murray, 1939.

Octavo, 550 pages with 20 line illustrations and 3 maps plus over 50 pages of plates.

'The Baiga are a small aboriginal tribe who inhabit the eastern ranges of the Satpura Mountains in central India. Their traditional occupations are hunting, shifting cultivation and the practice of divination and magic. Verrier Elwin's book is the result of six years' intimate contact with this ancient, remarkable and delightful people' (dustwrapper blurb).
