Pintupi Country, Pintupi Self by Fred R. Myers ( Signed by Author)


The Pintupi – a hunting-and-gathering people of Australia’s Western Desert – were among the last Aborigines to come into contact with white society. This book presents a comprehensive ethnographic interpretation of the ways Pintupi politics, cosmology, kinship systems, nomadic patterns, and social values reinforce and sometimes contradict each other. The book is based on the author’s fieldwork over a three year period.

A hardcover copy, signed and dedicated by the Author, with an illustrated, unclipped dust jacket. The book has grey boards, a red cloth spine and gilt lettering and motif. There is some rubbing to the edges of the dust jacket and some tearing to the top edges of the dust cover. There is some foxing but the text, black and white photographs, maps and diagrams are clear and legible.

Now in a clear, removable cover to protect from damage.
