This is a great book for anyone interested in Seereer religious custom especially how the dead are treated through the process of mummification before they are sent off to the afterlife ("janiiw" in Seereer). There is lot of information about the role of the Seereer priestly class (saltigue), Seereer tumuli as well as cultural aspects like birth in Seereer society. Highly recommend.
