Firelight Glow and a Radio Set Lure Blanket-wrapped Visitors Nighttime hospitality draws Javah6s to the Schultz campfire - to get a cup of coffee, watch with delight as Mrs. Schultz makes manioc-flour pan cakes, or simply listen to radio music (left).

"This little heron couldn't fly be cause he was too young. We took care not to let his bill loose; it could put out your eye. Our guide said so." "Tonic made a bow for me and showed me how to shoot in front of a flying bird so it and the arrow come together. But I wasn't very good at it. Often I chased lizards in the grass."
