Jean Liedloff, an American writer, spent two and a half years deep in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians. The experience demolished her Western preconceptions of how we should live and led her to a redically different view of what human nature really is. She offers a new understanding of how we have lost much of our natural well-being and shows us practical ways to regain it for our children and for ourselves.
