Author Name:Curry, Ben
Ben Curry had always dreamed of the adventurous life.
As a young boy, and eventually as a young man studying at Cambridge University, he knew there must be a bigger, bolder life waiting for him somewhere.
In 1957 he found it.
Or, better yet, perhaps it found him.
That summer, a Cambridge-sponsored botanical expedition took him to a remote region of Colombia where he became captivated with its natural beauty and its people.
A short time later, he purchased a primitive 500-acre homestead and named the fledgling cattle ranch "Curucucú," after a local species of songbird.
The grand adventure had begun.
Follow Ben, his wife, family and friends on an amazing, often humorous journey into the forests, towns and homes of a Colombia few outsiders have ever seen or written about.
