Verrier Elwin was an English missionary in India who was converted to Indian ways of thinking through contact with Mahatma Gandhi, the national movement, and tribal India. He studied and lived with several of the country's little-known tribes and became close to Gandhi as well as Nehru. This moving and well-written autobiography describes Elwin's remarkable experience in India and provides a fascinating look at this important pioneering anthropologist.
