Determined to experience the mighty Amazon for himself, Dennison Berwick travelled alone for more than year in a small canoe along major rivers and unnamed tributaries. At night he slung a hammock between trees in the forest, surrounded by all the noises of creatures active in the darkness. He walked for a week to reach the source of the Amazon in the snow-capped Andes in Peru; got lost in the forest; took hallucinogenic ayahuasca and ended his adventure by trying to convince an angry hunting party of Yanomami Indians that he was not a gold-miner attempting to rob them. Praise for "Amazon" ..".not just another travel book. (The author has) a sharp eye, an inquisitive nose and boundless compassion for the river dwellers..." Environment Brazil ..".as much a fascinating and timely record of the people of the rainforest as it is the story of a personal quest. The Traveller. "Berwick's vision...is acute."
