Reviews
"Stunning photographs, 95 color, nine b&w, of Amazonian rain forests by Diego Samper give Makuna: Portrait of an Amazonian People more depth than the typical anthropological study. Sociologist Kaj Århem, who has visited the Makuna frequently since 1972, provides a compelling narrative as well, with in-depth accounts of Makuna culture, creation myths, and the inevitable challenges of the encroaching world."--Publishers Weekly

"Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries."--Library Journal

"Samper's often spectacular photos of the Makuna and their environment also span nearly two decades of work."--Journal of Anthropological Research
