These are a few pages from an extensive archive of note books by Orlando Ribeiro, who changes the way geographers do fieldwork to include the human species. Drawings, and short texts, observations about the land, tools, and agricultural workers are just a few of the descriptions which give an immediate source of information, an essential part for the geographer's published work. It also provides a record of the geographers habits and journeys. 1930s-40s to 1985.
