Into the Heart review 22 de abril de 2004
Por Martha Byar - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
Into the Heart is a book written by Kenneth Good, an anthropologist. Good went to the rainforests in Brazil to live among the Yanomama. He went there to study their way of life. He discovered how different these people are from the people in the United States.
Their diet consisted of what they hunted and things they planted. They worked very hard and lived off the land. These people never complained no matter how bad a situation was. Unlike our society, the only transportation they had was by foot, they slept either outdoors or in houses with large open rooms with many people, and they did not have medicine or doctors.
During his stay, Good learned the lifestyle of the Yanomama. He learned their ways and accepted the things they did. While there, he met a very young Yanomama girl. He gradually fell in love with her. Even though they had major cultural differences, the two of them left the rainforest and came to the United States where they were married.
This is an excellent book to read. There was suspense not knowing what was going to happen next. It was extremely interesting to see how other people in the world live as compared to our own traditions. Plus it had some romance mixed in by the marriage of this couple from totally different cultures. I would recommend that everyone read this very interesting book.

Unique, informative and fascinating. 18 de abril de 2004

Formato: Tapa blanda
An anthropologist spends many years (multiple trips) amongst the Yanomamo Indians of the Amazon, who had had very little contact with civilization, and only a limited amount of its goods (e.g. some matches, a few better axes). He eventually marries one of the tribe, who returns to the United States with him. Anthropologist's faculty advisor is a real villain. The account is personal, rather than scholarly, although Good did write scholarly papers, and he refrains from much abstract analysis or generalization. The Indians have strong human emotional attachments for children, and family, and are not very violent, but the society is very sexist, tribes are prone to get mad at other tribes, and there isn't much concept of an abstract morality. It is a utilitarian morality, and tribe members are not likely to stick their necks out to protest unfair treatment to others. Disapproval does carry weight.

A remarkable story 7 de octubre de 1998
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
This is a truly remarkable book, much different from most anthropological literature. Although Good sets out to do a very mainstream anthropological study, he gets drawn in to the community, and what ensues is a fascinating tale, a touching love story, and hopefully, a major change in people's beliefs about so-called "primitive tribes". As Good becomes more and more frustrated with the competitive and stuffy world of academia and more connected to his Yanomama tribe, he truly begins to change his life. Remarkable!

Would-be Anthropologist's Delight! 30 de mayo de 2014
Por Cedar Button - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
And....in absolutely beautiful condition. Mine is a collectible, not just a story I read years ago then lent and lost: it will never be lent again.
This book is much more than a study of people living deep in the wilds of South America, it is a loving, inspirational, sometimes bewildering, story of a 20th Century time-traveler and how he fell in love with the village, their lifestyle, and the people. Additionally, this book encouraged me to re-consider our own American history, and any stereotypical ideas we might still retain in the smalls of our mind regarding labeling people different from the collective "we".
I loved it! 30 de julio de 2014
Por L. Martin - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I found this book exciting, fascinating, inspiring, and memorable. It offers scientific insight, adventure, and love in a single well-narrated package. The vast majority of people will never have such an unusual and intense mixture of experiences in their lifetime, and I can think of no other book that offers such a mixture of vicarious experiences either.
Oh yes, and it also offers a classic hero. Years after reading the book I can still recall how indefatigable the narrator-protagonist was in all his endeavors. He was a man who, having formed a plan or aspiration, just could not be stopped from realizing it. And I don't think he was flattering himself in the story either, because he realized all of his goals despite years of struggle that I know would have sent me home defeated several times over.
All in all, this is a truly unique reading experience.
