Fulfilling Manuel Córdova’s promise of another story, F. Bruce Lamb’s Rio Tigre and Beyond recounts an unparalleled Amazonian adventure, completing the life story of Manuel Córdova Rios who at the beginning of the 20th century was abducted by Native American tribals to be trained as their new shaman. Here he remembers the rest of his life, a series of missions and adventures guided by his pre-Columbian training but in the context of the upper Amazonian Peruvian river city of Iquitos, in a world intricately changed by its millennial contact with the imported Columbian civilization.

The first overview of the work of this seminal multi-disciplinary artist, Spit Temple collects texts and transcriptions of Cecilia Vicuna's uncategorizable improvised performances, which combine singing, movement, chants, and stories. Also included are a critical introduction by Rosa Alcala, a poetic memoir by Vicuna addressing her life in performance, images from Vicuna's extensive personal archive, and response pieces by Maria Damon, Linda Duke, Nada Gordon, Jena Osman, Kenneth Sherwood, Juliana Spahr, Dennis Tedlock, Edwin Torres, and Rodrigo Toscano. "Vicuna's work, at its very essence, is 'a way of remembering'--as if exile and recall joined to unravel an 'autobiography in debris;' as one personal story within a larger narrative." --Roberto Tejada

The story of two generations of scientific explorers in South America—Richard Evans Schultes and his protégé Wade Davis—an epic tale of adventure and a compelling work of natural history. In 1941, Professor Richard Evan Schultes took a leave from Harvard and disappeared into the Amazon, where he spent the next twelve years mapping uncharted rivers and living among dozens of Indian tribes. In the 1970s, he sent two prize students, Tim Plowman and Wade Davis, to follow in his footsteps and unveil the botanical secrets of coca, the notorious source of cocaine, a sacred plant known to the Inca as the Divine Leaf of Immortality. A stunning account of adventure and discovery, betrayal and destruction, One River is a story of two generations of explorers drawn together by the transcendent knowledge of Indian peoples, the visionary realms of the shaman, and the extraordinary plants that sustain all life in a forest that once stood immense and inviolable.

Decolonial Approaches to Latin American Literatures and Cultures engages and problematizes concepts such as “decolonial” and “coloniality” to question methodologies in literary and cultural scholarship. While the eleven contributions produce diverse approaches to literary and cultural texts ranging from Pre-Columbian to contemporary works, there is a collective questioning of the very idea of “Latin America,” what “Latin American” contains or leaves out, and the various practices and locations constituting Latinamericanism. This transdisciplinary study aims to open an evolving corpus of decolonial scholarship, providing a unique entry point into the literature and material culture produced from precolonial to contemporary times.
