Living On The Edge is a must read for all who are interested in the perils of a remote Amazon people, their ancient mysterious traditions and struggles against deforestation. Revealed is their intimate and exotic lives and their battle against the white men s greed for their land for cattle ranching.

Ill prepared to fight, the village tribal chief relies on the shaman s supernatural magical powers. A clever scheme to save the village is planned by the chief s youngest son. Becoming friends with the enemy s crippled son, he discovers their plans but risks his life when entering the white men s world of evil politics and corruption, including Brazil s president, and kidnapping of the governor s family.

Outraged by her husband s refusal to see the danger, Tatoa leaves the chief and warns her people of future perils. She also warns her husband of terrible consequences if their son is forbidden to marry his beloved. But the chief, refusing to listen, is faced with a family tragedy. With his mask making skilled and supportive grandfather, Iasin unwillingly awaits his initiation and scarification ritual, and worries he will shame his family with his outburst from the pain he must endure to prove his manhood.
