Describes the Amazonian Waiwai and their present environment, and looks forward 100 years to consider what will be left to them as the destruction of the Amazon forest proceeds.
..."classic ethnography about a group of people called the Wayapi...Campbell appropriates verses from Thoreau, Blake, Wordsworth, and Shakespeare...one of the last anthropologists to experience such an "untouched" culture in the face of the increasing transnationalism and western materialism. Salient issues of forced development, "modernization," and assimilation are presented in a well organized and lucid monograph. Its descriptive content (even with its "romance") is refreshing in a generation where many contemporary studies have become preoccupied with global transculturalisms.."
