Don't Sleep, There are Snakes

Vintage Books | November 1, 2009 | 300 pages

A linguist offers a thought-provoking account of his experiences and discoveries while living with the Pirahäa, a small tribe of Amazonian Indians living in central Brazil and a people possessing a language that defies accepted linguistic theories and reflects a culture that has no counting system, concept of war, or personal property, and lives entirely in the present.
