Among the Ibos of Nigeria is the work of the British missionary George Basden. He lived with the Ibos for many years, recording the complexities of their culture at all stages in life, from childhood to the intricate rituals surrounding death, for his white European audience. He confesses in his introduction that it is a practical impossibility for a European to comprehend fully the subtleties of the native character, even after years in their midst, but he still manages to provide a intimate record of a fascinating but little-known people of Western Africa around the beginning of the 20th century.
