"Suddenly from a long list of glossy, cliched and evermore forced and superficial photographic books on African people and wildlife, from out of the blue, comes Robert Vavra's A TENT WITH A VIEW. Simple, true, authentic, romantic, candid, personal and direct, it is a pure experience with the aristocratic Maasai in a rare and isolated setting. That Vavra did his book in five weeks is an amazing (anachronistic) miracle of an achievement. To be the godfather for a Maasai youth's passage to manhood and to bullfight with a Cape buffalo over a wounded friend, were yet other coups."
