This beautiful book opens a window on the fundamentally different culture of the indigenous peoples of the Xingu. It follows the expedition route that the authors took in 2007 - from the Upper Xingu - the Xingu Indigenous Park - to the Kayapo region and, finally, to the Lower Xingu, arriving at the Amazon River. This book challenges the assumption that mainstream global culture is the only way and that people with a fundamentally different basis for their lives will inevitably be subsumed into the mainstream. Rather than being a throwback, indigenous cultures represent a viable and important alternative way of life in the 21st Century. This book shows how the continuance of indigenous cultures is a matter of their informed choice, not of deprivation or lack of opportunity. That choice should be respected and supported.
