Amazon Eden

"History in this particular context is envisaged as an endless series of predatory attacks perpetrated by cannibal outsiders and the continuous destruction caused [within the tribe] by homicidal madness, interrupted here and there by truce, growth and recovery".

From Trekking Through History - The Huaorani of Amazonian Ecuador by Laura M. Rival (Columbia University Press, 2002)
