A Red Woman Was Crying

Stories from Nagovisi

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Beautifully written, evocative, and utterly original, A Red Woman was Crying takes the reader into the rich and complex internal lives of South Pacific rainforest cultivators - young and old, male and female, gentle and fierce - as they grapple with predatory miners, indifferent colonial masters, introduced religion, their own changing culture, their sometimes violent past, and the "other" who has come to live with them. Don Mitchell's new collection of short stories, set among tribal people on Bougainville Island in the late 1960s, demystifies ethnography by turning it on its head. The narrators are Nagovisi, and through their eyes the reader comes to know the young American anthropologist, himself struggling with his identity as a Vietnam-era American, who's come to to study their culture in a time of change.
