5.0 out of 5 stars BOOK ON THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE UP THE AMAZONMarch 12, 2006
This is an important book on the people who today compose the society that lives in the Amazon rain forest. In Brazil alone there are 20 million people, yet most of the attention is paid to deforestation, with little paid to the people who live in it. 

The main groups include indians, British, Americans, portuguese, jews, arabs, Japanese, among others. The book dedicates a chapter to each of these populations. 

I am somewhat biased in this review since I am the author's grandson. If you would like a copy of this book, feel free to get in touch with me by e-mail.
