It's Just the Coffee Talking... evening chit chat; The Rainforest Survivors (book)

This afternoon I spent a little time just enjoying the quiet and reading.  I was cold and tired so laying under a fluffy comforter with a book was exactly what I needed/wanted to do.  I'm currently reading The Rainforest Survivors: Adventures Among Today's Stone Age Jungle Tribes - which is really quite good.  It's an easy, simple read but interesting, and I'm learning new facts I didn't know before, and even learned of a new tribe I'd never heard of before.  I'll link below if anyone is interested - I have it on my Kindle app from Amazon but you can order it in print too.

Sadly, I'm on the last third of the book so I'll probably end up finishing it tonight and I wish it were longer with a few more tribes.  Again, it's just an easy read that is also interesting.




 

 

 

"Even in our hyper-connected world, there are tribes scattered across the far reaches of the globe who still live much the same way that their ancestors did thousands of years ago. Having had minimal contact with the outside world, these peoples currently live in harmony and unison with the environment around them. But as technology grows and the human population expands, the way of life of these tribes becomes increasingly threatened with every passing day. 


In The Rainforest Survivors, veteran overseas reporter Paul Raffaele recounts his time spent with three unique jungle tribes—the peace-loving Congo Pygmies, New Guinea’s tree-dwelling Korowai cannibals, and the Amazon’s ferocious Korubo. Over months spent living in these three communities, Raffaele experienced firsthand wisdom and mysterious rites forged over many millennia."
