The book deals with the most aboriginal races of Assam - the Bodos of the Kachari flock. They are cheery, good natured, semi-savage folk, candid, simple, trustful but incorrigibly disrespectful, according to notions of Indian good manners.The book is, primarily, a monograph treating of that branch of the Kachari race which lives in scattered hamlets among the foothills of the Himalayas in Assam and Bhutan, inter-mixed with the people from the plains who have intruded into what was once their undisputed home. Their own names for their race is Boro or Bodo (the o has the sound of the English o in hot) The book has an interest and importance from an ethnological point of view, which are perhaps disguised by the author`s characteristically modest estimate of his task and of his power of dealing with it.The book speaks of the characteristics, physical and moral. Origin and Historic summary of the semi-savage Bodos. Further more, details are given about their social and Domestic life, their laws and customs, their religion, folk-lore, traditions and superstitions by the author who lived. Printed. Printed Pages: 140 with 14 plates & 1 map.
