The Yanoama in the tropical forest between the Rio Negro
and the Orinoco, live on the cultivation of various food plants, of which plantains are of
major importance. This book describes Yanoama society as characterized by a state of
chronic warfare that determines not only inter-village but also intra-village and
intra-family relationships. This book also contains a very interesting description of the
author's personal experience as a field worker.
