Yetman takes the reader on an engaging journey into Guarijio territory, incorporating interviews and his own observations into the story he unveils about their history, their struggle for land during the latter decades of the twentieth century, and the ways in which they live. A strong undercurrent of natural history infuses the writing as the author skilfully weaves his own interest in ethnobotany into the shared interests of his hosts, developing a picture of their lifeways through their uses of plants that might otherwise go unnoticed and also through the natural environment in which they have survived for generations. This is an enduring work that seeks to understand human relationships to land and to larger dominant societies, that are examined through the eyes of a people who have maintained their cultural identity in the face of immense change.
