Fulfilling Manuel Córdova’s promise of another story, F. Bruce Lamb’s Rio Tigre and Beyond recounts an unparalleled Amazonian adventure, completing the life story of Manuel Córdova Rios who at the beginning of the 20th century was abducted by Native American tribals to be trained as their new shaman. Here he remembers the rest of his life, a series of missions and adventures guided by his pre-Columbian training but in the context of the upper Amazonian Peruvian river city of Iquitos, in a world intricately changed by its millennial contact with the imported Columbian civilization.

"The most interesting part of the book is that which deals with the intake of a hallucinogenic compound called ‘ayahuasca’...It is at this point that the narrative becomes a priceless revelation."
—Carlos Castaneda, Los Angeles Times
"Many experiences and happenings in the story might strain the credulity of all who have not lived themselves amongst Indians in primitive Amazon societies."
—Richard Evans Schultes, Harvard Museum
