The book has what I consider and extremely long introduction.  Nisa and her life were interesting to read about.  I sure would not want to trade palaces with her.  She seemed to be stuck in a sexual rut.  More lovers than I could imagine.  More husbands than I would ever want.Always looking for food or asking for it from others, wondering if you will have enough for yourself and children.  I wonder what the San world is like now, so many years later and so many changes that have happened since this book was written.

Life in the bush is not easy.
