168 pages. Glossary, index and bibliography. Map endpapers. "From 1934 to 1956, self-taught Filipino photographer Eduardo Masferre dedicated his talent to recording images of the indigenous people in the heart of the Philippine Cordillera mountains - the Bontok, Kankana-ey, Kalinga, Gaddang and Ifugao people. Masferre created in photographs a sensitive portrait of a place and its people. The rice terraces sculpted into the steep mountain slopes and long valleys, the planting, cultivation and harvesting of rice, a family gathered at their hearth, scenes of the village, weavers and potters at work, men engaged in religious rituals and ceremonial dances, and strong faces that meet one's gaze with great integrity - Masferre preserved all of these in timeless images that transcend ethnography and imbue documentary fact with deeper meaning." - dust jacket. Clean and unmarked with moderate wear. Binding open at page 3. Fading to top of dust jacket back panel. Dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. [ISBN 9719108253]
