Summary
"This is an enjoyably readable and generally illuminating look at the more intimate side of Toraja life and relationships ... [It is] an innovative approach to ethnography, valuable in its attempt to deal with aspects of life that are often passed over in more conventional ethnographic writing."--Journal of Asian Studies
