Description
'In the mid-1930s, a young French ethnographer named Claude Levi-Strauss ventured by rail, truck, canoe, and horseback into the Brazilian interior to document the cultural habits of tribal groups whose numbers and customs were still somewhat protected by their relative isolation... (He) created a rare visual record of archery contests, funeral rites, face painting, and other traditional customs... Although (he) declares that he is not a photographer, the images here are skillful and compelling... His apology is not directed at us so much as at the ghosts of his tribal subjects, 'the last escapees from the cataclysm' of European colonialism and its aftermath.'-New York Times Book Review
