This book provides a study of the peoples of the Horn of Africa - a unique blend of races, customs and creeds, from the sophisticated cultures of the highlands and the Somali coast, to the nomads of the Ogaden desert. Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher have both published books on Africa: "Nomads of the Niger" and "Africa Adorned", and in this book they make a journey to look for the source of a life force that is found everywhere amongs the Africans, even during the tribulations of war and famine. They found a place that shelters a huge variety of human societies, and in so doing they hope to contribute towards preserving the spirit of the region.
