About the book:

In this thorough analysis, Barth explores the features of and the economic, social, and political adaptations to the nomadic, pastoral existence of this tent-dwelling population: the drama of herding and migration; the idleness of a pastoral existence where the herds satisfy the basic needs of man; the freedom, or necessity, of movement through a vast, barren landscape.
