With these naked warriors, the Yanoama, who normally avoid every contact with civilized men, she passed a precarious twenty-two years in the immense and still unexplored equatorial forests. She acquired the name Napagnuma and eventually found her place in the very complex social and family structure of the tribe, learning their speech, sharing their everyday life, their dangers and pleasures, observing or participating in their wars, rivalries and hatreds, endocannibalism, shamanism, worship of the dead and addiction to hallucinatory drugs. But she also found amongst these wild creatures virtues by which even the most precarious existence becomes tolerable: generosity, a desire for justice, friendship and pity.---Having returned to her own people with her four Indian sons, whom she had rescued from massacre, she was overwhelmed by the indifference and egoism of white people and had reached the point of regretting the Green Hell from which she had fled. She then met Ettore Biocca, a professor from the University of Rome, at that time leading a scientific expedition to the upper Orinoco. She gave him this simple but exact account of her experience, which was tape-recorded. This tale is quite unique: a record from within of a warrior society into which no man or woman has ever before been able to penetrate.' (From inside front cover blurb).***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. N° de ref. de la librería 1556
