"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This book tells the harrowing experiences of a woman who endured almost lethal psychological and physical travails during her married life, homesteading in the Amazon jungle, and who finally, despite being blind and deaf, overcame the tragedy of the death of both her husband and daughter and survived her environment as well as her terrible isolation. The focal point of the story is the period following her husband and daughter's deaths, when Little found the strength and competence, despite her handicaps and ill health, to keep going until she was rescued. But her psychological survival during 20 years of marriage to an emotionally dominating, fanatical man is equally amazing. The book, which is written by a filmmaker and journalist, can be read on many levels, and the life of this extraordinarily brave women should appeal to a wide audience.Joan W. Gartland, Detroit P.L.
