Unique, informative and fascinating. 18 de abril de 2004
Por algo41 - Publicado en Amazon.com
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.

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.

Thanks for bringing me close to the Yanomama people. 9 de octubre de 2013

Kenneth Good gave me the opportunity to get an inside in the real lives of the Yanomama people in the 70's & 80's. Beyond a social sciences rigorous approach, his story was more than anything the recount of a both sides life changing human experience. As a venezuelan myself, I am amazed on how he could navigate the rivers of bureaucracy that are more perilous that the Orinoco currents, fighting government officials as voracious as piranhas. His book opened my eyes and heart to the realities of one of the last tribes that have resisted being swallowed by "civilization." I hope the Yanomami nation would survive the new influx of the current regime and the ambitions of gold seekers tainting their pristine territory.

A study in violating Anthropological Ethics 16 de febrero de 2013
Por Merriel L Johnson - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
I read this book for a women's book club that I am in. This is a good study of the Yanomame People. Interlaced with this study is the personal travesties of Kenneth Good violating all ethics of Anthropolgy. The book club women had a general consensus that this was borderline, it not full blown pediaphilia. A good book for Anthroplogy students who are studying the Ethics of their profession.
