This fascinating adventure follows anthropologist Florinda Donner as she experiences firsthand the wild mystery and slow destruction of an indigenous tribe in the endangered rain forest. Her rich images of daily life as she lives with the Yanomama and the magic of ritual in this native village unforgettably portray a world threatened by extinction.
