I found this book to be both informative and engaging. In reading about these 'lost white tribes' scattered around the world, I got the sense that many of these people were lost in a cultural limbo. On the one hand, they were part of the communities in which they lived, sporting the same accents and values as their neighbors. On the other hand, however, their physical traits often set them apart from the others. There is a sense of not belonging while also trying to blend in. In many cases, these are not the stories of descendants of white colonialists who retain massive fortunes as their inheritance from the original settlers. These are often tales of descendants who were also plunged into poverty and social rejection. The book, therefore, is not only a sociological study into these people, but also a look into what it means to 'belong' in a society in which you are physically marked as being different.
