This book, which will accompany a landmark TV series, charts Bruce's breathtaking journey from the Amazon's vast mouth on Brazil's Atlantic coast to its source on a slope of Nevado Mismi, an 18,000-foot mountain in the Peruvian Andes. He travels over 10,000 miles, on foot, by light aircraft and boat to stay with the tribes that live silently beneath the rainforest canopy.
He explores eight countries, high mountains, wide savannahs, deep jungles and the most powerful river in the world. And he tells the stories of the people that inhabit the greatest forest on Earth.
The book shows the Amazon as it is now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century: a complex, shifting environment; home to millions of people; the front line in an environmental war; the lungs of our planet. It combines adventure, exploration and immersive anthropology.
Bruce Parry started his adult life as a Royal Marine officer at the age of eighteen. He then worked as an expedition leader, and now combines his love of the outdoors and film into his award-winning documentaries.
