He Borara is a novel in progress loosely based on the life of the famous, famously controversial, anthropologist Napoleon Chagnon and his work among the Yąnomamö of Venezuela. Because many of the key players are still living, and because I wanted the freedom to develop characters as the story requires, I've changed most of the names, including those of the Yąnomamö. Place names and dates are real, as are the names of some of the main scholars Lachlan Shackley (my very fictionalized stand-in for Napoleon Chagnon) muses on.
