Notes

Description
"Set partly in an imaginary country by the edge of the African Sahara and partly in England, The Rape of Shavi creates a humorous, ultimately poignant portrait of a people confronted for the first time with the ways of the civilized world. King Patayon, ruler of Shavi, has more than his share of troubles already, when from out of the sky a group of "albino aliens" comes crashing down in an enormous "bird of fire." From then on Patayon is faced wtih the sort of problems that even the powerful goddesses of the lakes cannot solve. As the albinos and the Shavis are introduced to entirely new forms of language, custom, and exploitation, both are left to wonder just what exactly is "civilization"? -- back cover.
