About this book

The author lived among the Yanomami Indians in the depths of the Venezuelan forest for over fifteen years. Their perceptions and stories of daily life; their shamanism, magic and sorcery; their conflicts and alliances with other villages, recreate in great detail the atmosphere, images, noises, and smells of life in the Amazon forest.
