Walking the Amazon: 860 Days. One Step at a Time. by Ed Stafford
Walking the Amazon: 860 Days. One Step at a Time.

PhilipB, January 1, 2013

I loved this book. True story of Ed Stafford who walked the entire length of the Amazon River from its known source in Peru to its mouth in Brazil. What he thought would take 12-15 months ended up taking 2 1/2 years! Riveting throughout. Ed encountered indigenous tribes with spears, drug runners, dangerous animals and insecnts, deforestation of the Amazon, etc. For fans of Bill Bryson and Turn Right at Machu Picchu by Mark Adams books.
