Unbelievable story - did a good job of narrating his life story

ChristchurchLib Feb 16, 2016

Imagine being the child of an American scientist and an Amazonian tribeswoman who gives up trying to cope with American culture when you're six years old and disappears from your life. This describes author David Good's childhood, when his mother's abandonment left him uncomprehending and depressed. In this forgiving and insightful autobiography, Good relates the story of his parents' marriage, his early years, and his later struggles to understand who he was and why his mother had left. After going to the Amazon to meet her and her tribe, the Yanomami, he became able to reconcile himself with both cultures and find his own peace.
