Summary "In this book, Slater draws on her fifteen years of experience collecting stories and oral histories in the Amazon among many different groups of people. Throughout Entangled Edens, the voices of contemporary Amazonians mingle with analyses of such writers as Claude Levi-Strauss, Theodore Roosevelt, and nineteenth-century naturalist Henry Walter Bates. Slater convinces us that these stories and ideas, together with an understanding of their origins and ongoing impact, are as critical as scientific analyses in the fight to preserve the rain forest."--Jacket.
