The Birds of Prey.
The Voice of Darwin.
"Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."
Origin of Species. Charles Darwin. 1859
The Feral Way.
The Huaorani in the Ecuadorian headwaters of the Amazon comprise about 1,500 people who are living in up to 24 temporary settlements in an area of almost 20,000 sq. km, completely covered by rainforest. They revere the jaguar and call themselves, Huaorani which means "human beings" or "the people," and refer to everyone else as cowode or "non-humans."
This is Umayue, the great hunter. The Huaorani people do not keep track of how old they are but it is estimated that he is close to 70. His senses have become finely tuned for a feral life, allowing him to live as one with the jungle. Umayue and his family move through the forest at night without a flashlight, with no shoes and definitely they knows how to dress for the hot and humid jungle.
