Summary:
Follows anthropologist Napoleon Chagnon as he collects anthropological field data among the Yanoama Indians of southern Venezuela. Includes information about the Yanomamo, such as their system of kinship ties, their religious beliefs and ceremonies, and the growth and fissioning of their widely scattered villages. Chagnon's commentary touches on the problems of the fieldworker, and the ambiguities of the anthropologist's role and his relation to the subjects of his study.
