Editorial Reviews for this title:
This gloriously illustrated guide encompasses the entire Amazon River region, including historical and geographical information; articles on conservation; and a cultural perspective on the Amazon Indians.
The mighty Amazon dwarfs all other rivers in the world; her forests are as diverse as her countless tributaries and support an unparalleled variety of wildlife. Cadogan's brand-new guide to the Amazon hunts out remote lodges in pristine forest and penetrates spectacular national parks studded with waterfalls, where the chances of seeing rare species are highest. Whether you want to climb the vertical Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, see the sun slip over Bela Dormicida mountain, stay with Ticuna Indians in Brazil, or discover a creature new to science and give it your name, the Cadogan Guide is simply indispensable.
