This book is an anthropological account of the subsistence ecology of the Etolo people of the highland fringe of Papua New Guinea. An account is given of the Etolo community's practice of deliberately placing pigs in the garden in order to resynchronize a switch from sweet potato gardening to sago starch processing.
Their different food-producing activities are shown to have seasonal rhythms, which maximize the use of food resources at appropriate times and areas.
