Synopses & Reviews
Deep in the jungles of Ecuador live the Cofan people, a so-called primitive clan little changed over the centuries. Their leader has led the Cofan in a cagey, media-wise, and sometimes hostile struggle against an uninvited new neighbor - Big Oil. This leader, this 'Amazon Stranger,' is an American named Randy Borman. Author Mike Tidwell spent many months with the Cofan people and with Borman - and has returned with this riveting tale. Amazon Stranger is the story of a man obsessed with the jungle and desperate to save it and its people. It is an unforgettable book, written with vividness and drama by a superb investigative reporter. (6 1/4 X 9 1/4, 228 pages, map)
