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.
