A study of one of the very few East African tribes living by hunting wild animals and gathering wild vegetable foods and honey the way of life of all mankind until the first development of farming some 12,000 years ago. Their nomadic mode of subsistence is shown in detail and the film emphasises that in spite of the apparent barrenness of the country, adequate supplies of food can always be obtained without undue effort. Men actually spend more time gambling for arrows than hunting and gathering. Made for use in schools and for introductory anthropology courses in universities.
