It was really interesting to find out about the tribes of the olden days. It was like reading out of an encyclopaedia, only much more interesting. But it was also like reading out of an encyclopaedia which tells stories, which is kind of weird. It was a great book. I would really like to read it again. It's one of the best books I've ever read, and it is fortunate that I have a copy of it.
