I’m Outta Here! – Part 2

The primary research method of cultural anthropology is known as ethnography.  It is the process of immersing oneself into the daily routines of a group of people in order to access, and eventually write about, that culture from the native’s point of view.  One specific form of ethnography is called participant observation, which is when

The Eagle Has Landed | I’m Outta Here!

Howdy Folks! After many months, we are glad to announce that we have a book!  It is Monday night, February 16, and the book is now for sale at Lulu.com!
