"Among the birds is the inhuma, which is:
...a gigantic and mysterious fowl, bigger than a cock capercailzie but built
on more or less the same lines. These would take refuge in the tops of trees
and thence utter a strange, murmurous and rather asthmatic crooning. Whether
they are good to eat I can not say."
I tried a google search on inhuma and Brazil but all I came up with is a
reference to a Lake Inhuma.


The only link I could find on this subject was a site created by an
elementary school teacher on Peter Fleming's book. She describes the Inhumas
as "mysterious", "said to have talons on it's wings", and an "object of some
sort of superstition among the Carajas"

Perhaps a book on the Carajas would yield more information. But this does
smell like the sort of thing that would attract Wolfe's attention.

Nice find!
