Talk of the Devil
Lost White Tribes - Journeys among the Forgotten
"A humanistic book, revolving around tales of dying places and dying communities, around people who live surrounded by old furniture, old verandah, old books…The lost white tribes are individuals living a chapter of history that for the rest of the mankind is forever closed. Which is why, despite Riccardo Orizio's sympathy with these obscure heroes, his is nevertheless an anti-colonial book, a demonstration of the fact that this particular human adventure can never be re-lived. It belongs to the past and to the past only…Above all, this book is a wonderful piece of reportage. It is the book of a man who has travelled to remote places and come back with a completely new map of the colonial world".
Ryszard Kapuscinski
