The region comprising Ethiopia and its surrounding countries---the Horn of Africa---is known today as a land of famine and war, but it is also the last secret kingdom of the world. Cut off by soaring mountain ranges, burning lava deserts, and an isolated Indian Ocean coastline, the Horn of Africa has for centuries sheltered an astonishing variety of societies. This book of postcards from two of the world’s outstanding photographers, Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher, records the lifestyles and customs of the women of the Horn. The thirty compelling photographs included here give us a rare glimpse into their private, protected---often amazing---worlds. 30 color photographs.
