Encompassing nature
a sourcebook
edited by Robert M. Torrance

Published February 1998 by Counterpoint .
Written in English.

First Sentence

In the absence of writing, and for the most part of spoken languages understood outside their immediate regions, the richly complex traditions of tribal cultures remained largely unknown to others, except as bizarre curiosities of "savage," until the last two centuries, when both dedicated amateurs and trained ethnographers have labored to understand and make them known.
