Synopsis:

Set in the South American jungle, this thriller follows the clash between two misplaced gringos--one who has come to convert the Indians to Christianity, and one who has been hired to kill them. Now the basis for a major motion picture.


Review:

"[Matthiessen's] evocation of the jungle is powerful, but no more remarkable than his insight into the people he portrays. He tells a fascinating story, and tells it well....It is this firm but subtle evocation of strong feeling that gives Matthiessen's book its power over the imagination. Here, in an appallingly strange setting, he sets his drama of familiar aspirations and disappointments."

Granville Hicks, Saturday Review

Review:

"One of those rare novels that satisfy all sorts of literary and intellectual hungers while telling a story that pulls you along out of sheer, human kinship."

Anatole Broyard, New York Times Book Review
