Publisher Comments:

Imagine making your living by hunting, fishing, and collecting wild plants and insects. Imagine having to worry about being attacked by a jaguar or some other wild animal. This is how our ancestors lived for hundreds of thousands of years, but only a few peoples carry on this ancient lifestyle today. One of the few are the Ache, hunter-gatherers living in Paraguay, a country in South America.

Magdalena Hurtado is an anthropologist who has been studying the Ache for fifteen years. She has spent years living with the Ache people: learning their language, observing their history. The photographs and text offer invaluable insight into the work of an anthropologist.

Synopsis:

Anthropologist Hurtado relates how she spent more than 15 years studying the Ache, hunter-gatherers living in Paraguay in South America, and how she spent years living with the Ache, learning their language and observing their history. Full-color photos.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 64) and index.
