Although one of the biggest countries in Africa, Sudan is nonetheless one of the least known. Seldom exposed to the ravages of civilization, the Nilotics tribe have preserved their customs almost intact. They have adapted to the hardship imposed by their environment and, proud of this adaptation, are self-sufficient. However, military surveillance has forced on these people - who live without government, judicial institutions or political structures - an awareness of their dependence on Khartoum. Having spent several happy, rewarding stays among the Nilotics, during which he tried to grasp the essence of this people and their original qualities, Jean-Baptiste Sevette came to appreciate the integrity, purity and pride of these herdsmen, whose ingenuity seems to belong to a bygone era.
