In this impressive, funny and moving work, Joe Kane tells the story of the Huaorani, a tribe living in the deepest part of the Amazonian rain forest in Ecuador. The Huaorani have only in the last generation been exposed to such items as the wristwatch. But the modern world is reaching them quickly; for better or worse--usually worse--they live astride some of Ecuador's richest oilfields. Oil production in the Amazon has opened the forest to colonization and industrialization, often with alarming results: about 17 million gallons, of raw crude, more than in the Valdez spill in Alaska, were spilled from a Amazon pipeline between 1972 and 1989. Kane, who lived with the Huaorani for months, immaculately reports on the tribes' connections with the old world and its battles with the new one.


Savages is a firsthand account, by turn hilarious, heartbreaking, and thrilling, of a small band of Amazonian warriors and their battle to preserve their way of life. Includes eight pages of photos.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
One of my professors used this book in an anthropology graduate seminar at Berkeley to examine the concept of field work, and the types of knowledge that field work imparts. We found this book to be very instructive in the values and practice of journalists as our society's "instant experts" as opposed to anthropologists who spend decades studying the cultures they write about. We were all struck by how little time Kane actually spent conducting fieldwork, how absorbed he was with himself, and we were shocked to see what little regard he gave to actually learning the language of the people he claimed to be so interested in studying. This book can teach readers quite a bit about how journalists study the world, and should not be confused with the field of anthropology (as the book's jacket blurbs would have it).
I do not wish to be overly harsh with this book for it does inform general readers of some important developmental issues facing indigenous peoples the world over. The information gathered outside of the field setting does present vital data on the travesties of the petroleum industry (though the author does ignore an embarrassing amount of published anthropological work on the Huaorani). This is the book's strength, but the degree to which it exoticizes the Huaorani (even given Kane's attempt at irony in naming his book) as (noble) Savages overly simplifies a complex situation, as deadline pressed journalists often do.

Joe Kane rings true.

His clear intelligent writing style brings the world of the Huaorani alive. He lived and travelled with them and gained their respect. He brings alive their toughness, compassion, and respect for their environment. It is as close to a another people as the reader is likely to get.

But Kane wanted to tell the larger story, the story of the economic and politcal forces arrayed against the Huaorani. At this task he fails. He didn't fail in the facts or in bringing the story to its inevitable conclusion. He fails because he bores us. The first priority of art is entertainment. And his book became dull in long sections dealing with local and international politics and money. We know money corrupts and power wins in the end. Teach us something we don't know- entertain us with more stories and insights into the Huaorani

Before reading this book, I knew nothing about the Amazon and wasn't that interested. Now, even though it's been half a year since I finished the book, I find myself thinking about Moi, Enquiri, Judith, and the rest. Joe Kane also did a good job explaining the very complicated situation with the oil companies. I was inspired to hit the library for more books on the Amazon and the people there. It's also inspired me to check in with Rainforest Action Network and write a few letters. One of my favorite books ever.

In Savages, Kane conveys the dire importance of understanding and respecting the traditional practices of the Huaorani Indians of Ecuador. Kane examines through personal experience their struggle to maintain identity, land, and dignity in the face of oil companies, missionaries, and economic progress. The author demonstrates journalistic reporting at its very best and assures the reader a sincere and responsible account of the matters at hand. This book should be read by anyone interested in the future of humankind

I enjoyed this book very much because it gave a great overview of a tribe that was being affected by oil industries. The destruction of the rainforest to have a few dqys of gas is not worth it. I just visited the rainforest in Ecuador, and it was definitely something to preserve. A great movie with the same story is "Trinkets & Beads." It is a bit exspensive to rent, and very hard to find, but extremely worth it. Read the book, then see this documentary.

This excellent book by Joe Kane will put you right into the jungle alongside the Huaorani Natives of Ecuador. A sensitive and objective look at the plight of the local tribes whose lives have been forever changed by the quest for oil.
The author travels around the jungle with an unforgettable cast of characters whose antics will touch you and get you laughing.
This book is highly recommended as enjoying reading which will keep you thinking long after the book is finished.
