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."
