Overview

Entre 1948 y 1950, el autor de este libro recorrió un extenso territorio selvático comprendido entre Colombia, Brasil y Venezuela. En aquella oportunidad estableció la primera relación pacífica del hombre blanco con los indígenas yanomamis, y a su regreso a Francia publicó el relato de su expedición en un libro que fue considerado por la crítica como una de las obras maestras de la antropología literaria.

Desde entonces ha pasado medio siglo. La Orinoquia y la Amazonia se han vuelto el centro del las preocupaciones ecológicas del mundo entero, y los indígenas yanomamis siguen despertando la curiosidad de los etnólogos que estudian cómo se deshace una cultura en contacto con la civilización moderna. Durante ese medio siglo, sin embargo, a la manera de los grandes ríos, este libro ha labrado su lecho entre miles de lectores de varios idiomas y se ha convertido en un texto que, gracias a las notas del autor para la presente edición, permite hacer un viaje inolvidable, de ida y de regreso, por la Orinoquia y la Amazonia de ayer y de hoy.
