In 1979 this century's largest gold rush began in the Brazilian Amazon and has continued unabated ever since, despite attempts by governments and mining companies to control it. It involves hundreds of thousands of miners in an informal sector industry which produces over a billion dollar's worth of gold annually, and has become famous - or notorious - well beyond Brazil. This book looks at the Amazon gold rush without sensationalizing it, at the politics and economics of gold in Brazil, and at the implications of the gold rush for Amazonia and its people.
