A heavily illustrated book about the African-descended people in the Suriname rain forest whose ancestors escaped into the jungle after being transported by 17th-century Dutch slave ships. The authors--a neurobiologist and an electrical engineer--spent eight years among the isolated group, documenting their customs and traditions.
