Wade Davis (Editor), Harrison, K David (Editor)
National Geographic
Cultural Portrait

National Geographic tours the world through its clans, tribes and ethnic groups in this highly informative overview. Organized geographically, the editors start with the Afrikaners of South Africa and consider the Azeris of Azerbaijan, the Samoans of Polynesia, the Sami of Scandinavia and many others -- 222 in total. The book features maps, photographs and traditional sayings. A fine reference that readers may be tempted to read cover-to-cover.
