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.

All the Day Long shares the joys, trials, and adventures of an ordinary family used in extraordinary ways in the lives of an unreached people group -- the primitive Yanomamo Indians of southern Venezuela. After returning from military service in World War II, Joe and Millie Dawson meet, marry, and settle down for what they think will be an ordinary life. But when God transforms their lives through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the trajectory of their lives changes forever, and they give their lives to sharing the Gospel with people who have never before heard it. God sends this family to the remote Amazon rainforest to serve the Yanomamo people. From their harrowing first encounter with the Yanomamo to daily life and ministry, you will laugh, cry, and pray with the Dawsons as you read All the Day Long. This true story of how God used Joe and Millie Dawson will challenge your faith, remind you of God's faithfulness, and open your eyes in new ways to the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
