Product description

Anthropologists surmise that the Yanomamo are perhaps the last culture to come in contact with the modern world. Author Mike Dawson's hair-raising and humorous growing up adventures, from his birth in the jungle through the death of his wife, Renee, provide insights into this primitive culture. Dawson was the cultural advisor to the award-winning, full-length feature film, Yai Wanonabalewa: The Enemy God (, the true story of a Yanomamo leader recounting his life as a shaman and the supernatural struggle for the survival of his people. ..".a bit of Huck Finn, with an Amazon twist." Simon Romero Andean Bureau Chief, The New York Times Imagine a white boy, in "the hood" of this jungle tribe, living, playing, and growing up Yanomamo. Christopher Bessette, Writer/Director of the feature film Yai Wanonabalewa: The Enemy God ...a story of life with Stone-Age people, guaranteed to expand the mind of even the most experienced. Mark Andrew Ritchie, Author, Spirit of the Rainforest
