In 2002, National Geographic sent journalist Scott Wallace into the deepest recesses of Brazil’s Amazon to track an uncontacted indigenous tribe—the People of the Arrow. Hear his gripping first-person account of adventure and survival as described in his new book: The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon’s Last Uncontacted Tribes.

Follow Scott Wallace’s blog on National Geographic’s News Watch site. Read a conversation with Scott on the Washingtonian’s site.
