Summary
This year's best selling Massey Lecture? The Wayfinders takes readers on a journey through time on a discovery of ancient wisdoms, languages and cultures. Some are already extinct, others are quickly on their way out. It is estimated that 50% of the languages spoken today will disappear in our lifetime. The Wayfinders is an enlightening, awe-inspiring and cautionary look at vanishing cultures and languages from one of the world's most celebrated and distinguished anthropologists
