'The present translation of his adventures among the Brazilian cannibals, with which the gruesome original woodcuts are included, now make Staden's story available to a larger public...'New Statesman
The first part of the book is a straightforward account of the author's personal experiences. The second part is a detailed treatise on the customs of the Tupinamb√°, their polity, trade, religion, manufactures and warlike undertakings, and of the flora and fauna of the country. In-depth information is given on rites and ceremonies (those on cannibalism are not for the faint-hearted reader), government and laws and religious observances.
Facsimiles of woodcuts.
