They also cultivated sugarcane along the Xingu river, to the south of Gurupa  . Pace, Richard (1998). Wagley, Charles (1953). London, Oxford & New York: Oxford Univ.

Massive changes have engulfed the Brazilian Amazon region in the forty years since Charles Wagley's landmark study, Amazon Town, was first published. In his engaging restudy, Richard Pace explores today's "Amazon Town" (Gurupa), where development efforts have left little untouched, little familiar.Focusing on the actions of the community as it faces new opportunities and recurring adversity, Pace examines the social and cultural history of Gurupa - including such factors as regional underdevelopment, environmental degradation, and social conflict - as well as the more recent effects of political mobilization and liberation theology on human rights awareness and social justice. He richly illustrates the political and economic forces - national and international - that affect Gurupa, and explores the motivations and means of those searching for alternatives to current patterns of development.
