Over thousands of years, a range of cultural traditions developed within the Amazonian rainforest. This richly illustrated collection of twelve papers, accompanying an exhibition of the same name at the British Museum, looks at the evidence for these native populations whilst exploring the inevitable link between nature and culture and stressing the need to preserve this unique environment. Divided into four parts, the volume examines economy and subsistence, archaeology and society, ideology and encounters by explorers and ethnologists.
