"Collection includes some of the author's most important essays written during 25 years of research among the Warao of the Orinoco Delta. Focus is on religious life, for which author provides in-depth comparative and historical interpretations of the symbolic values the Warao bestow on environmental, material, and social processes, revealing how Warao experience of life and the material conditions of existence are endowed with religious and mystical significance. This approach, outside of studies of the Guarani, has rarely been explored in South American ethnology"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.http://www.loc.gov/hlas/
