5.0 out of 5 stars Stand Up for Cultural Diversity, May 16, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Light at the Edge of the World: A Journey Through the Realm of Vanishing Cultures (Paperback)
Wade Davis is both an exceptional anthropologist and an exciting writer. The remote and unique cultures that he records in this work give us home bound and over-weight readers a glimpse of hope in the human potential that we all share. We may not be able to travel as he has but through his vivid and engrossing writing, we can celebrate the human spirit that he has witnessed first hand. The special people he introduces to us see the world in different lights, sounds and smells than we do from our homoginized world view. We need to understand these cultures as a way to balance our own as we try to look beyond it to find new ways to meet the ever changing reality of our existence.
