Publisher Comments:

In the 1940s, biologist Richard Evans Schultes uncovered many of the secrets of the rain forest, relying not only on his own prodigious investigations, but on the wisdom passed down by local tribes. Thirty years later his student, Wade Davis, followed in his footsteps. Two interwoven tales of scientific adventure bring to life the riches of the Amazon basin and bear witness to the destruction of its indigenous culture and natural wonders over two generations. photos.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 493-515) and index.

John McCarthy, November 29, 2009 (view all comments by John McCarthy)
One of the greatest stories told to gain understanding of the natural history and people of the Amazon rain forest, told by a student of the pioneering ethnobotanist Richard Evan Schultes. Davis has grown to be a master of the field, as well as adventure anthropology and world cultures. "One River" is great reading for anyone going to the rain forest or dreaming about such a journey.
