Author Name:Berwick, MR Dennison
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.
"Berwick's vision…is acute." Country Life
