In Trouble Again: A Journey Between the Orinoco and the Amazon

Overview

O'Hanlon takes us into the bug-ridden rain forest between the Orinoco and the Amazon—infested with jaguars and piranhas, where men would kill over a bottle of ketchup and where the locals may be the most violent people on earth (next to hockey fans).

This book takes us into a heart of darkness - the bug-ridden rain forest between the Orinoco and the Amazon.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The friend who accompanied O'Hanlon on an earlier, two-month expedition flatly refused to go with him on a four-month journey to Venezuelan Amazonia. Everyone who read Into the Heart of Borneo can sympathize, as O'Hanlon's approach to travel borders on the lunatic. He persuaded Simon Stockton to join him, but Stockton quit the expedition when he ran out of reading material and, anyway, he didn't like the jungle. O'Hanlon pressed on with a Colombian scientist and an Indian crew, on uncharted rivers in a dugout canoe. He wanted to push a little farther than the 19th century explorers von Humboldt and Bonplan, and to meet the Yanomami tribe, reputedly the most violent people on earth. O'Hanlon survived the expected hazardspoisonous snakes, caiman crocodiles, piranhas, the toothpick fish and even the potent yoppo a narcotic used in Yanomami rites. As an expert naturalist, his descriptions of landscape and animals are superb. His humor is frequently scatological. But he holds our attention throughout. Photos. First serial to Interview. Jan.

    Absolutely fascinating tale of a journey along the Orinoco River in southern Venezuela

    The author and a companion from England travel with local guides and helpers along the Orinoco and through almost impenetrable jungle. The people and animals that they encounter are interesting but frightening and one wonders who in his right mind would travel to these places. They meet poisonous bugs, biting ants, large spiders, anacondas, jaguars and indians that would just as soon kill you as look at you (the Yanomami).

    The author is learned, observant, witty and writes extemely well. He has a special interest in birds and describes many beautiful kinds. This is a great book.
