About this title


Chronicles a decade of unprecedented destruction--all in the name of development--and its devastating effect on the global environment

From Library Journal:

The Amazon rain forest has already been the subject of Alex Shoumatoff's The World Is Burning ( LJ 8/90) and Andrew C. Revkin's The Burning Season ( LJ 6/1/90). British author/filmmaker Cowell has been visiting the Amazon for over 30 years and recording its destruction on film since 1980. This book is intended as a companion to the author's TV documentary of the same name, to be broadcast this fall by PBS. Cowell's book is similar to the previous books, yet it also stands out on its own merits as a testimony of the greed, cruelty, and villainy, as well as the courage and vision, that surround the fight for the rain forest. Of the three titles, this may be most in demand because of the TV tie-in.-- Ian Wallace, Agriculture Canada Lib., St.
