Written with both popular and academic readers in mind, Amazon Journey is a study of one of the few remaining native Amazonian tribes to maintain its traditional way of life. The book details the author’s year living among the Mekranoti, learning their language, accompanying them on jungle excursions and observing their daily lives. The book traces a vivid narrative while outlining methods of research in the field.
