This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In NOMADS I HAVE KNOWN AND LOVED Irma Turtle shares her 28 years of personal experiences among unusual remote African tribes who welcome her into their tents, huts, and huge hearts. With insightful texts and photos she celebrates and documents their unique ancient cultures, rituals and traditions still persistently intact today. NOMADS memorializes the individual and collective beauty of these peoples; animates humorously unexpected encounters; and fills you with the same awe she feels. In 1984, frustrated with the lack of meaning in her life, Irma sets off on her own search, leaving behind a major international career in advertising, including both Madison Avenue and Brazil. She is 40, and it is now time to find out who she really is, what is really important in life and what she truly wants. Travel, tribal peoples, primitive societies and art are her great passions. A trip into the southern Algeria Sahara Desert to see the 6000 year old rock art completely captivates her heart as she discovers the beauty of both the desert and its Tuareg nomads, the "Blue Men of the Sahara." Soon back in New York she opens her own adventure travel company, Turtle Tours, with her very own market niche. She specializes in introducing Western travelers to remote tribal peoples with the Tuareg nomads of the Sahara as first destination, to be followed by others equally interesting. Irma quickly finds herself welcomed into tribal families, comfortably hobnobbing with local chiefs, delightedly holding babies named after her, and happier than she has ever been. It's a fair trade. She is always a welcome guest, taking to her tribal friends the supplies they need.like coffee, salt, tea, sugar, cloth. She also takes other interested and adventurous travelers who, like herself, feel privileged to be among them. The niche is just right. It doesn't take her long to exchange the persona of "white collar business woman to "tribal godmother." NOMADS is a celebration of the diversity of humanity, as well as Irma's testimony to the uncompromising ability of these special tribal groups to be who they are.
