This is a spirited retelling of the true story of Manuel Cordova-Rios, who as a young man was abducted by a tribe of Indians while on a rubber-cutting expedition in the Amazon jungle in 1907. This first-person account relates Cordova-Rios' terrifying capture, his encounters with Shumu, the tribal chief, and his life among the Huni Kui, an isolated tribe possessing sophisticated knowledge of the curative powers of jungle plants and the habits and natures of the many animals that lived with them in the lush tropical jungle. Under Shumu's tutelage, Cordova-Rios underwent a shamanic initiation, participating in dreaming sessions induced by the psychotropic plant ayahuasca. In these group trances, the young Peruvian man received from the chief and other members of the Huni Kui their astounding store of knowledge and tribal lore of the jungle environment. Cordova succeeded him as the tribe's chief on Shumu's death. After living among the Huni Kui for several years, Cordova-Rios eventually returned to his life in the outside world.

THE UNCONQUERED TELLS THE EXTRAORDINARY TRUE STORY OF A JOURNEY INTO THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF THE AMAZON TO TRACK ONE OF THE PLANET’S LAST UNCONTACTED IN DIGENOUS TRIBES. Even today there remain tribes in the far reaches of the Amazon rainforest that have avoided contact with modern civilization. Deliberately hiding from the outside world, they are the unconquered, the last survivors of an ancient culture that predates the arrival of Columbus in the New World. In this gripping first-person account of adventure and survival, author Scott Wallace chronicles an expedition into the Amazon’s uncharted depths, discovering the rainforest’s secrets while moving ever closer to a possible encounter with one such tribe—the mysterious flecheiros, or “People of the Arrow,” seldom-glimpsed warriors known to repulse all intruders with showers of deadly arrows. On assignment for National Geographic, Wallace joins Brazilian explorer Sydney Possuelo at the head of a thirty-four-man team that ventures deep into the unknown in search of the tribe. Possuelo’s mission is to protect the Arrow People. But the information he needs to do so can only be gleaned by entering a world of permanent twilight beneath the forest canopy. Danger lurks at every step as the expedition seeks out the Arrow People even while trying to avoid them. Along the way, Wallace uncovers clues as to who the Arrow People might be, how they have managed to endure as one of the last unconquered tribes, and why so much about them must remain shrouded in mystery if they are to survive. Laced with lessons from anthropology and the Amazon’s own convulsed history, and boasting a Conradian cast of unforgettable characters—all driven by a passion to preserve the wild, but also wracked by fear, suspicion, and the desperate need to make it home alive—The Unconquered reveals this critical battleground in the fight to save the planet as it has rarely been seen, wrapped in a page-turning tale of adventure. From the Hardcover edition.

In 1927 a young woman was kidnapped by warriors of an Amazonian tribe never before in contact with the outside world. She spent over four years as a prisoner of one of the fiercest and most isolated tribes of the Amazon jungle. After her daring and harrowing escape in 1931 she was interviewed by Peruvian writer Arturo D. Hernandez, himself a native of the Amazon. That interview became the basis of Selva Tragica, which gives a unique insight into the life, thoughts and social structure of that fierce and warlike tribe of cannibals before any contact with the outside world, and chronicles the changes that occurred as the first contacts were made. It is a story that can only be told from the inside because, as the story shows, the very contact with the outside investigators changes the very thing they are investigating. Selva Tragica was first published in Spanish in 1954 and won the Ricardo Palma National Prize as the best novel in Peru that year. A French edition was published in Paris in 1956. This is the novel's first translation into English. Other works of Hernandez include Sangama: A Story of the Amazon Jungle, Bubinzana: The Magic Song of the Amazon, and Tangarana and other Tales."
