This is an innovative contribution to anthropology's interest in how identity is created and defined. Dr Harris uses two forms of ethnographic writing to explore the historical and social identity of a village of caboclo fisherpeople who live on the banks on the River Amazon. He intersperses his analytical chapters with narrative sections that describe more freely what the people do and how they do it. He thus moves beyond notions of identity that define themselves in collective, ethnic or class terms, by focusing on people's practical engagement with their environment. As the first full-length study of a modern Amazonian floodplain peasantry, this volume also contributes to debates in ecological and economic anthropology and to studies of the peasantry in Latin America.

In this reissue of the environmental classic The Burning Season, with a new introduction by the author, Andrew Revkin artfully interweaves the moving story of Chico Mendes's struggle with the broader natural and human history of the world's largest tropical rain forest. "It became clear," writes Revkin, acclaimed science reporter for The New York Times, "that the murder was a microcosm of the larger crime: the unbridled destruction of the last great reservoir of biological diversity on Earth." In his life and untimely death, Mendes forever altered the course of development in the Amazon, and he has since become a model for environmental campaigners everywhere.

“A powerful story of self-discovery, survival in the wild.” —Los Angeles Times Four travelers meet in Bolivia and set off into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but what begins as a dream adventure quickly deteriorates into a dangerous nightmare, and after weeks of wandering in the dense undergrowth, the four backpackers split up into two groups. But when a terrible rafting accident separates him from his partner, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone against one of the wildest backdrops on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map, or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his feet begin to rot during raging storms, as he loses all sense of direction, and as he begins to lose all hope, he wonders whether he will make it out of the jungle alive. The basis of an upcoming motion picture, Jungle is the story of friendship and the teachings of nature, and a terrifying true account that you won’t be able to put down.
