Review:

"A fascinating work that will be very useful in courses on South American ethnology, development, ethnohistory, and ethnographic writing." --Jonathan D. Hill, American Ethnologist

"A marvelously sensitive, stimulating, witty, yet forboding portrait of life on the tropical forest frontier between Central and South America." --P. R. Sullivan, Choice

"Among the best and most elegant works of ethnography that I’ve ever read. . . . a model of ethnographic practice and representation." --Paul Stoller, American Anthropologist
