Before They Pass Away

An awe inspiring new book has been published called Before They Pass Away.  This epic journey explores 29 tribes in the most remote and inaccessible parts of the globe.  This is a remarkable work of art and is unfortunately cost prohibitive for most people and institutions.  However, I highly recommend the website as a learning tool to be used in the classroom and at home.  You will delight in Meeting each Tribe.

The author and photographer beautifully captures the essence of his journey by stating on his website, "There is a pure beauty in their goals and family ties, their belief in gods and nature, and their will to do the right thing in order to be taken care of when their time comes. Whether in Papua New Guinea or in Kazakhstan, in Ethiopia or in Siberia, tribes are the last resorts of natural authenticity."
