Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Joan Mark offers an interpretive biography of Patrick Tracy Lowell Putnam (1904–53), who spent twenty-five years living among the Bambuti pygmies of the Ituri Forest in what is now Zaire. On the Epulu River he constructed Camp Putnam as a harmonious multiracial community. He modeled his camp on the “dude ranches” of the American West, taking in paying guests while running a medical clinic and occasionally offering legal aid to the local people, and assumed the role of intermediary between locals and visitors, including Colin M. Turnbull, author of the classic Forest People. Mark describes Putnam’s mercurial relations with family and with his African and American wives—and follows him to his sad and violent end. She places Patrick Putnam within the context of three different anthropological traditions and examines his contribution as an expert on pygmies.

From the Back Cover:

Joan Mark offers here an interpretative biography of Patrick Tracy Lowell Putnam (1904-1953), the U.S. anthropologist who spent twenty-five years living among the Bambuti pygmies of the Ituri Forest in present-day Zaire. On the Epulu River he constructed Camp Putnam as a harmonious multiracial community. Putnam modeled his camp on the "dude ranches" of the American West and took in paying guests while running a medical clinic and occasionally offering legal aid to the local people. He assumed the role of intermediary between them and the outsiders who came to Camp Putnam, including Colin M. Turnbull, author of the best-selling The Forest People. Although half a world away from New England, Putnam continued to struggle with the pressure of family expectation. Mark describes his relation to his family as well as his relationships with the African and the American women Putnam took as wives. Toward the end of his extraordinary life, frustrated and driven half-mad by a virulent lung disease, Putnam became tyrannical; he tried to destroy the world he had created for himself on the Epulu River. The author places Putnam within the context of three different anthropological traditions and examines his contribution, as the world's leading expert on pygmies, to future studies of the area.
