Overview

* Stories told by indigenous peoples of the Amazon, including Indians, rubber tappers, miners, loggers, and ranchers
* Suggests social and political reforms that could sustain the lives of rain forest dwellers and the planet
* Written by an activist who set out by bus, truck, boat, and on foot to live with rich and poor inhabitants of Brazil

Follow Le Breton through one of the Earth’s last great frontiers—the Brazilian Amazon—and meet the people whose voices have too seldom been heard. Voices from the Amazon reveals the complexity of daily life in remote forest settlements and gritty river towns, uncovering the truth about development in the Amazon.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A concert pianist living in Brazil since 1989, Le Breton took a three-month trip through Brazil's Amazon region, interviewing a diverse group of inhabitants. Though this book lacks insight and power , it serves as a decent overview of the region and its conflicts. Traveling in the state of Rondonia, which had grown from 100,000 people in 1960 to one million in 1990, Le Breton first speaks to representatives of the decimated Indians, who are struggling to acquire autonomy, then to loggers, one of whom declares, ``These forests were given to us by God to be used.'' The caboclos --forest people of mixed blood--are concerned with day-to-day survival, and independent miners, known as garimpeiros, scratch out a living. A state bureaucrat waxes optimistic about planned local development, rich ranchers protest potential land reform, and rubber tappers talk about setting up forest reserves to protect against ranchers clearing land. Le Breton concludes, somewhat wishfully, that the Brazilian government must reform to preserve the forests, improve infrastructure and invest in environmental education, and that creditor nations should consider debt relief for Brazil. June
From the Publisher
"Few books tell the plight of the Amazon rainforest from the perspective of the indigenous peoples themselves. Le Breton lets the people of the forest tell us their side of the story."
