From the dust jacket: "Sent by the French army on a special mission among an almost unknown primitive tribe, the Mois of Indochina, Rene Riesen lived one of the most extraordinary adventures of modern times. Stepping back many hundreds of years, becoming one of a people who still hunted with crossbow and spear and practiced polygamy and fetishism, for months he lived a life no other white many has ever experienced. His assignment was to win partisans for the French in their struggle against the Viet Minh, who were themselves trying to convert the tribesmen to their cause."
