206 pages. After Nigel Barley's insurance company determined that anthropology was not a hazardous sport, he was free to set off for Torajaland, a remote district of Indonesia. His visit sparked an enduring love afair which led his friends, the Torajans, to London. Their hilarious visit makes a fitting climax to Barley's book. Tiring of the horrors of West Africa, an area which he has spent much of his professional life studying, anthropologist Nigel Barley taught himself Indonesian and spent a number of months at the end of 1985 on the island of Sulawesi. Here he hoped to find unsullied cultures to study, unspoilt natives to investigate. Barley found plenty to wonder at and plenty to admire among the Toraja, a vastly interesting people whose culture include headhunting, transvestite priests, and massacre of buffalo.
