An investigation of the Xingu Indians—a tribe living in total isolation from the world that lives in ecological and social balance—this work discusses their myths and rituals, traditions and culture, and the efforts of the Villas Boas brothers who helped protect the tribe and contributed to the founding of the Xingu National Park. A compendium of information on the flora and fauna and climate of the region is also included.
