The magic of the Amazon rainforest enchanted artist Barbara Navarro as she spent the winter months with the Yanomami communities in Venezuela and Brazil over a period of twelve years. Recent developments in the Amazon, including the degradation of nature and of the way of life of the indigenous people who depend upon it for their survival, inspired her to write her children's book series which takes place in the jungle. The vividly illustrated stories in this series evoke daily life in the rainforest and the magical quality of the Yanomami's relation to the plants and animals around them. The first book, "Amazon Rainforest Magic: The Adventures of a Yanomami Boy," recounts the journey of Namowe, a thirteen year old Yanomami boy living in the rainforest, as he seeks a cure for his baby sister.
