A classic account of the peoples of the Amazon first published in the 1930s. This is the most personal of the many books by Levi-Strauss, the inventor of structural anthropology and an intellectual powerhouse. He begins: "I hate travelling and explorers. Yet here I am proposing to tell the story of my expeditions and experiences." After pondering the worthlessness of most accounts, he goes on to present his own tale, full of humor and insight. Demanding, but worth it.
