Over several years, Parry spent a month living with fifteen different tribes. The result is an insight into wildly differing cultures that are vibrant, hospitable and full of spirit. This book is based on the hugely successful BBC 2 series. His encounters also throw up some thought-provoking and challenging questions: Is change good? Should we protect tribes people? And, more importantly, who are we to impose our own cultural sensitivities in our judgement of their customs? Along the way Parry takes part in some ridiculously dangerous rituals, which include taking mammoth amounts of a potentially lethal hallucinogen, having his penis forced back into his body and eating rats' livers cake. He also forges new friendships that will last him a lifetime.
Bruce Parry started out his adult life as a Royal Marines officer. He then worked as an expedition leader, and now combines his love of the outdoors and film with his award-winning documentaries.
'I don't know anybody who hasn't fallen for the honey-stealing, boar-spearing, goatherding, frog-poison-resisting, hard-partying world-saver Bruce Parry (also increasingly known as 'lovely Bruce')' Sunday Times
