9780711221703: The Vanishing Rainforest

Why is the Brazilian rainforest vanishing so fast? And why is it essential not only to the people and animals within it but to the whole world? This story, told through a child called Remaema, describes how the Yanomami tribe is battling against potential developers. Can a solution be found that will protect the forest and allow the tribe to continue living as it always has, while benefiting from limited development? Richard Platt's dramatic story and Rupert van Wyk's evocative art, accompanied by an information spread, offer an exciting perspective on a controversial and topical subject.
