The Tree Where Man Was Born
by Peter Matthiessen
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 368 PAGES
A vivid portrait of East Africa, enthralling in its masterful detail on nature and daily life. Matthiessen ranges from prehistory to modern East Africa, circa 1961, deftly combining the finest of nature writing and sensitive commentary on social and political history. In this far-ranging book, we travel with him to Maasailand, Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, the Kenyan Highlands and out into the bush to witness the animals. It's an enduring classic, fully as interesting today as when it was first published by the "New Yorker" in 1972.
