“We shall study each particular pursuit in detail, attempting to show first of all the actual value of the activity as a form of food production; the nature of the operation, the difficulties, dangers and pleasures involved, and hence the multiplicity of human hopes, desires, and ambitions centered in the work.”

–Audrey I. Richards, Hunger and Work in a Savage Tribe: A Functional Study of Nutrition Among the Southern Bantu (1932)
