Major Tremearne was an Australian-born anthropologist who held several military and civil appointments in West Africa. In the foreword he writes that one aim of this book is "to show how much the uncivilized natives of Northern Nigeria resemble some other aboriginal races, possibly even our own ancestors and, incidentally, to prove that they are by no means as black in many ways as they are painted."
