Read Amazon's review of Land Without Evil

     Land Without Evil is a timeless message to our universal soul, Land Without Evil is the story of the Guarani people of South America and their quest to maintain their culture during the European onslaught of the 1700s. Shamanism, the beginning of the demise of the rainforest, religious bigotry, coming of age, and a touching love story drive this impeccably researched adventure.

Pallamary brings us to a mystical ancient jungle and into the heart of an indigenous culture in which the people are true to their dance and their dreams.

Excerpt from Land Without Evil

     “Water thundered. His eyes stayed closed and his fingers grew numb. His fee ached. Did his hands have the strength to grip again if he let go? He had to try, but fear held him. He heard another sound beneath the roar of the falls, and then his father's voice.

     “Do not look up and do not look down. The secret of defeating fear lies in keeping your mind in one spot, not in what has happened and not in what could happen. Only here. Only now. Nothing else matters.”

What others are saying about Matt Pallamary and Land Without Evil

This is one of the finest novels about the extinction of species I have ever read. What distinguishes "Land Without Evil" from other ecological tales is that the species facing extinction is the human species, embodied in the Guarani people. Pallamary's fluid writing style makes this book a real page-turner, and his grasp of the social and historical processes that shaped the "Americas" during their early colonial period is unsurpassed. Highly recommended.
Lawrence Hagerty, author of The Spirit of the Internet

Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451

Elements of Carlos Castenada, Peter Mathiesson, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez jostle each other, yet...Pallamary weaves an extraordinarily original web.
San Diego Union Tribune

“Land Without Evil” is a great read for anyone looking for insight and inspiration on their own spiritual journey.
Harold Bloomfield, author of “Healing Anxiety with Herbs.”

Pallamary plunges into the heart with a moving tale about people caught between worlds—the past, the future, and the possible.
David Brin, author of Startide Rising and The Postman.

Read, trust, expand, and know that once we, too, were all there...EMPOWERED!
Victor Villasenor, author of Rain of Gold

A triumphant blending of creative imagination and deep scholarly research, both driven by Matthew Pallamary's philosophical idealism, “Land Without Evil” proves that a suspenseful novel can sizzle with conflict—with no villains on either side, only good souls who differ.”
Charles Champlin, Arts Editor Emeritus, Los Angeles Times, critic, and author of Back There Where the Past Was
