Abstract

This unique study of the Turkana people who live as nomads in the savanna of northwestern Kenya includes research on their social and cultural organizations, their health, biology, demography, and economics. The Turkana's way of life is under increasing pressure to change and this volume provides an important analytical record of their traditions.
