One of the books that the TWIS book club read this year was Don’t Sleep, There Are Snakes: Life and Language in the Amazonian Jungle by Dr. Daniel Everett of Illinois State University.
In the book, Dr. Everett tells the story of his years spent in the amazon jungle studying the language of a small tribe of Indians. There are ups and downs, thrills and spills throughout, but the most important part of the story is the language and how it changed the Dr.’s life forever.
You would be amazed at everything Dr. Everett went through in the name of science. I know I was when I read the book.
Even more amazing was getting to speak with him on the Science Hour. See for yourself…Filed under DKSH, Reads and Watches |
