9780151685509: The Old Man Who Read Love Stories

An enchanting adventure of personal honor in the magical, savage world of Amazonia, this is the story of the jungle, a green hell and Eden; of the Shuar Indians who know how to live in harmony with it; of the machines and the gold prospectors who have invaded it. When an ocelot stalks the village, only the old man--who knows the jungle--is able to face it.
