Praise

“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
