"By reading Le Breton’s fascinating story of exploitation we are carried into the invisible chain of slavery which holds human beings in bondage not only in Brazil, but in many countries, even London, Paris and New York. By entering into others’ lives we commit ourselves, even in a small way, to eradicating a practice which governments have condemned but have so far failed to remove."
"A well-balanced investigation that shows us slavery in the Amazon in a personal way, from the perspective of the actors. No group is branded or unfairly treated, and we see a picture of a society struggling with the challenges of development."
