Summary
This collection consists of 9 documents about the Burusho, a mountain people living primarily in the Hunza valley, but also in the Nagar and Yasin areas, and in the Gilgit district of the northern areas of Pakistan. All are in English except Lorimer, which provides both the original text in Burushaski and its translation into English. Four documents by David L. Lorimer, a British political agent who lived in Hunza from 1920 to 1924, and his wife, Emily O. Lorimer, focus on folklore, local traditions and linguistic issues. John Tobe's work tries to correct popular western views which wrongly regarded Hunza as a paradise where people live extraordinarily long healthy lifes. John Clark compliments Tobe's work by listing the many cases of disease which he encountered while maintaining a general dispensary in the area in 1948-1951. The remaining two documents discuss economy, ecology and social organization
