9780140098075: A Plague of Caterpillars

The chance to witness a rare circumcision ceremony was not to be missed. Nigel Barley's return to Cameroon promised much. The Dowayos, a pagan mountain tribe, were due to perform their fearsome ancient ritual for the first time in six or seven years. Armed with Christmas pudding and Cheddar cheese, Dr Barley embarked on his quest to witness this unusual anthropological phenomenon, only to find his way strewn with difficulties - not least an extraordinary plague of black, hairy caterpillars. The author of 'The Innocent Anthropologist' has again produced a catalogue of hilarious anecdotes, as well as a skilful reflection on the problems of different cultures understanding one another.
