About this title


A comprehensive and detailed description of the anthropology of the Amazonian Indians, this record brings to life a culture that has resisted all forms of modern civilization. An investigation of the Xingu Indians—a tribe living in total isolation from the world that lives in ecological and social balance—this work discusses their myths and rituals, traditions and culture, and the efforts of the Villas Boas brothers who helped protect the tribe and contributed to the founding of the Xingu National Park. A compendium of information on the flora and fauna and climate of the region is also included.

About the Author:

Orlando Villas Boas and Claudio Villas Boas were Brazilian activists on behalf of the indigenous people. They spent more than 30 years researching the lives and culture of the Xingu Indians and defending them against the encroaching and dislocating effects of civilization. For their explorations and humanitarian efforts, the Villas Boas brothers were nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1971 and 1975. They were awarded the Founders Gold Medal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1967.
