Vanishing Primitive Man by British author Tim Severin, an historian and explorer who has received the Royal Geographic Society’s Gold Medal, is the 9th volume in the Search series of histories of exploration and adventure travel, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press.
This was originally published in 1973 by American Heritage Publishing.
This volume is a bit of a departure from the usual famous explorer and trade route histories, instead focusing on the prehistorical migrations, early modern encounters with, and current societal situation (circa the 1970s) of ten surviving indigenous cultures with Stone Age roots, including the Aborigines of Australia, the Ainu of Japan, the Inuit of Canada and Greenland, the Sami of Lappland, the Xavante of Brazil, and several others, introduced with a foreword by noted anthropologist Colin M. Turnbull, known for his work among the pygmy tribes of Zaire and consultant for this book, and a list of further recommended reading.
Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.
