Dr. Powdermaker lived for ten and a half months in Lesu, as a close observer and participant in the events of the village. She describes the individual and social life of the Lesu native from infancy to death: how society and family are organized; pregnancy and birth rites; the care and instruction of children; initiation ceremonies, marriage, and sexual life; knowledge, magic, and religion.
