From Library Journal:

Hudson, a young Briton in his 20s, came to the village of Dulaba in The Gambia on an anthropological research mission, never clearly explained, but focusing on "the unchanging scheme of Mandinka women's lives." His work explores the landscape and inner workings of one village. It is a voyage of discovery and of self-discovery, despite the apparent sameness and slowness that characterizes village life. Hudson follows the women to the rice fields, working alongside them, trying to understand an impenetrable way of life. Despite his endless probing, and ubiquitous tape recorder, he remains apart, though he does cross a boundary by becoming intimately involved with a village woman. Hudson offers a little history, a little sociology, and a succession of vignettes. The many names becomes confusing at times, but his reconstructed conversations make the book personal, easily read, novel-like. This is anthropology with a human face. Recommended for African and women's studies collections and for large public libraries.

From Publishers Weekly:

Hudson, a young Englishman, spent 14 months in a village in Gambia. He originally intended only to observe the community, but as time passed, he became an active participant in the rituals of a people who inhabit termite-infested huts, live near dangerous bush and are entirely reliant on an annual rainy season for survival. PW called this a "perceptive first book."
