Book Description: Pantheon, 2008. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. New Hardcover with dust jacket, clean, tight, unmarked, (Fine with Fine Dust Jacket), Pantheon, New York, 208, First Edition, A riveting account of the astonishing experiences and discoveries made by linguist Daniel Everett while he lived with the Pirahã, a small tribe of Amazonian Indians in central Brazil. Everett, then a Christian missionary, arrived among the Pirahã in 1977â€"with his wife and three young childrenâ€"intending to convert them. What he found was a language that defies all existing linguistic theories and reflects a way of life that evades contemporary understanding: The Pirahã have no counting system and no fixed terms for color. They have no concept of war or of personal property. They live entirely in the present. Everett became obsessed with their language and its cultural and linguistic implications, and with the remarkable contentment with which they liveâ€"so much so that he eventually lost his faith in the God he’d hoped to introduce to them.
