Scott Wallace

Alum 2010

Scott Wallace For more than 25 years, Scott has worked as a writer, photographer and television journalist on the frontlines and “edge of contact” between competing worlds and coexisting cultures. He started his career in the 1980s covering the civil war in El Salvador, the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua, and the other “low-intensity conflicts” in Central America. Since the end of the Cold War, he has focused his work on the struggles along the world’s final wilderness frontiers, where indigenous peoples find themselves and their homelands under mounting assault by a globalized economy hungry for resources and markets. He is currently writing The People of the Arrow, to be published by Harmony Books (Crown/Random House), about a journey through the land of an uncontacted tribe in the Brazilian Amazon. Scott was recently a Public Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC.
