Daniel was born in southern California close to the mexican border. Once he met a missionary family and they told him they are working in Amazon. It sounded interested to him. Daniel was not a Christian but he decided to go to the Amazon forest because of that. He decided to leave to the jungle with his whole family. In his story he is talking about the life in the jungle and about how it is possible to survive and live together with the Indians. He is explaining his fears, expectations and how the amazonian nation of Piraha has changed his life.
