9780140095494: Cloud Forest: A Chronicle of the South American Wilderness

A classic work of nature and humanity, by renowned writer Peter Matthiessen (1927-2014), author of the National Book Award-winning "The Snow Leopard" and the new novel "In Paradise" Peter Matthiessen crisscrossed 20,000 miles of the South American wilderness, from the Amazon rain forests to Machu Picchu, high in the Andes, down to Tierra del Fuego and back. He followed the trails of old explorers, encountered river bandits, wild tribesmen, and the evidence of ancient ruins, and discovered fossils in the depths of the Peruvian jungle. Filled with observations and descriptions of the people and the fading wildlife of this vast world to the south, "The Cloud Forest" is his incisive, wry report of his expedition into some of the last and most exotic wild terrains in the world.
