Review quote

"In sum, Uzendoski's book is an engaging and accessible introduction to contemporary Amazonian life-ways and would be quite suitable as an undergraduate text. It also makes an important contribution to the ethnography of the Upper Amazonian Runa and should, more generally be read by all Amazonianists interested in personhood, sociality, and affect."--JRAI, Sept 2007show more
