Summary
"Explorer and Tribe presenter Bruce Parry embarks on a breathtaking journey down the Amazon. Bruce travels over 6,000 kilometres by foot, light aircraft and boat. On the way he meets the people who live and work along the world's greatest river, from members of tribes who are struggling to preserve their culture to loggers illegally stripping the rainforest of valuable resources. It's a complex, shifting and fascinating part of the world: home to millions of people and the frontline in an environmental war. In his own uniquely immersive way, Bruce unearths the stories of those whose lives are intricately linked to this most biodiverse of habitats. The truths Bruce discovers are often terrifying and always eye-opening, reminding us that the Amazon's increasing devastation will affect us all."--BOOK JACKET
