    " This book took me opn a journey (and would I hope any other reader) through what it is like to experience all the things you might imagine exist in the rain forest and DO. Submerging yourself in a world like no other ever been a dream, or a passing fancy? You will love this. It is readable in a immersive style where you are Mark; voyaging to and from experience to nightmare to sadness for the position of the tribes survival. While politics are low-key they are not ignored either; but not at all focused on thoughout the entire book at all. You get the full on journey with an educator on your hip as you venture through the rivers and forests of South America, allowed to try the drinks and potions, and waking up the next morning to start onward again. The description of the tribes are wonderful, and this makes the small bit of political language all the more potent. That is what this book is: potent. Full of intoxicating stories you will want to re-read. "

    " I am inspired and alarmed. This is a really important book, and I think that I will be affected by these stories for the rest of my life. I was completely ignorant. :) "
