Anthropologists surmise that the Yanomam are perhaps the last culture to come in contact with the modern world. Author Mike Dawson's hair-raising and humorous growing up adventures, from his birth in the jungle through the death of his wife, Renee, provide insights into this primitive culture. Dawson was the cultural advisor to the award-winning, full-length feature film, Yai Wanonablew: The Enemy God (www.theenemygod.com), the true story of a Yanomam leader recounting his life as a shaman and the supernatural struggle for the survival of his people. ..".a bit of Huck Finn, with an Amazon twist."
