At Home with the Savage


Fifteen year’s service in Uganda and the Sudan brought the author into contact with several primitive tribes,and he was able to develop ties of particular intimacy with the Lango and the Didinga. He was admitted by the former to membership of their tribal association, and was able to learn from the inside where others had to be content with looking through windows. He participated freely in their tribal activities, and is one of the few Europeans to have become expert in the practice of native warfare, and perhaps the only one to have hunted lions and elephants with a spear.
