In 1955, armed with a penknife and the instructions 'Keep the river on your right,' the Brooklyn-born painter Tobias Schneebaum set off into the trackless jungles of Peru in search of a tribe of cannibals.

Synopsis:

In 1955, armed with a penknife and instructions to keep the river on his right, Brooklyn-born artist Tobias Schneebaum set off into the jungles of Peru in search of a tribe of cannibals. Forgoing all contact with civilization, he lived as a brother with the Akaramas –– shaving and painting his body, hunting with Stone Age weapons, sleeping in the warmth of the body-pile.

Read this book if you have any interest in native people of the world. I read it while traveling through the area of Schneebaum's adventures.
