About this title:
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.

About the Author:
PETER MATTHIESSEN has written eight novels and a book of short stories. His parallel career as a naturalist and environmental activist has produced numerous acclaimed works of nonfiction, most of them serialized in the New Yorker. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1974. He is a founder of the Paris Review and has won two National Book Awards.

From AudioFile:
Anthony Heald delivers all the zest and passion in Matthiessen's well-known novel about the hypocrisy, condescension, and self-delusion in the white man's efforts to "civilize" the indigenous peoples of the South American jungle. Heald's characterizations are as lively and vivid as they are varied. From South American despots to American mercenaries to self-righteous missionaries, Heald's characters are fully realized, full of complexity and contradiction. Even if the characters are not remotely sympathetic, in Heald's narration they're always recognizable. And though the novel is unmistakably tragic, Heald also renders the comedy uproariously. His rendition of Wolfie--the American Jewish soldier of fortune who is a force of nature--is a marvel. M.O. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
