This is another book in the series called Children of the Americas, good reading and attractive looking. It tells the story of a boy in southern Ecuador, one of that amazing tribe, the Jivaros. Seldom seeing white man, their customs are strange and unchanging, they are the people who shrink the heads of their enemy victims and who use the poison blow-gun. The facts are fascinating and there is enough action to hold the reader's intense interest. At the end of the volume is a Jungle Guide, a map showing animals and plants and a dictionary of unusual words.
