Determined to experience the mighty Amazon for himself, Dennison Berwick travelled alone for more than year in a small canoe along major rivers and unnamed tributaries. At night he slung a hammock between trees in the forest, surrounded by all the noises of creatures active in the darkness. He walked for a week to reach the source of the Amazon in the snow-capped Andes in Peru; got lost in the forest; took hallucinogenic ayahuasca and ended his adventure by trying to convince an angry hunting party of Yanomami Indians that he was not a gold-miner attempting to rob them. Praise for "Amazon" "...not just another travel book. (The author has) a sharp eye, an inquisitive nose and boundless compassion for the river dwellers..." Environment Brazil "...as much a fascinating and timely record of the people of the rainforest as it is the story of a personal quest. The Traveller. "Berwick's vision...is acute." Country Life

About the Author:

Adventure has been in his blood since he was a small boy living on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in northern England. After leaving school, he hitch-hiked alone from Cape Town to Cairo and visited Afghanistan in 1976, before the Russian invasion. He emigrated to Canada in 1980 and in 1983-84 walked the entire length of the Ganges, India's holiest river, raising money for Save the Children Fund. The journey took seven months and was the subject of his first book, "A Walk along The Ganges". From 1985 to 1991 he travelled extensively in the Amazon in a canoe, carrying little more than a rain canopy, mosquito net and a hammock, and wrote about the experience in "Amazon". During these travels he met and stayed with Yanomami Indians in a remote area in the north of the forest and chronicled their fight to survive in his book "Savages, The Life and Killing of the Yanomami". In 1995 he built and operated Still Life Retreat in southern Ontario, Canada, and edited and published two editions of the "Canadian Retreat Guide". He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1984. He now lives on his 32-foot steel sailboat "Kuan Yin" and is currently retracing the extraordinary voyage in 1811 of an Inuit sea captain and Moravian missionaries along the coast of Labrador into Ungava Bay in northern Canada.
