No BioFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5-Reynolds's latest entry in this series explores the lives of a group of Yanomama Indians, who live in the Amazon Territory of Venezuela. The book follows the daily activities of a young boy whose father is a shaman, "a man of knowledge and strong spirit." These rain forest dwellers are closely linked with the ecosystem in which they live: they fish and play in the river; hunt in the jungle; and harvest plants for food, shelter, and body decorations. Clear, crisp, action-packed, full-color photographs and a brief, straightforward narrative highlight these activities. Most North American readers will find many of the customs, particularly the peoples' body painting, quite intriguing. This photo essay offers a quick glimpse into a culture that readers are unlikely to meet elsewhere, and effectively proves the author's point about the protection of the areas that shelter many countries' indigenous people.
