Title: Among cannibals : an account of four years' travels in Australia and of camp life with the Aborigines of Queensland
Author(s): Lumholtz, Carl
Date published: 1980
Publisher: Canberra : Australian National University Press
Description: 
The ecology movement has led to a revival of interest in pre-industrial societies, especially those based on a hunting and gathering mode of subsistence. The rapid disappearance of such societies in recent decades, has made accounts of their traditional way of life particularly valuable. A major example is the work of the anthropologist and naturalist Carl Lumholtz, who spent four years living among the aborigines of Queensland, at a time when aboriginal culture had only been minimally affected by European contact. Lumholtz{u2019}s book is in the form of a biographical narrative, and not only gives a full description of his personal experience, but also presents details of aborigine life and culture. The book contains over one hundred black- and-white illustrations covering all aspects of aborigine culture and Australian wildlife.
