The Wayapi Indians of northern Brazil's Amazonian rainforest, thought to be extinct until their the overwhelming forces of an expanding frontier. Campbell (social anthropology, Edinburgh U.) presents a vivid and compelling ethnography of these beleaguered people, challenges traditional ethnographic concepts, categories, and field methods, and appeals for a less remote, more humanistic anthropology.
