Crocker (anthropologist, Smithsonian Institution) and his editor wife discuss their longtime observations of this Brazilian tribe, changes since the first edition (date unclear), and implications for understanding cultural relativism, e.g. with regard to sexual mores. Includes a new preface, photos, native myths, orthography details, and a summary chart of topics in the text and auxiliary media. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
