5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 21 Oct. 2012
This review is from: In Trouble Again: A Journey Between the Orinoco and the Amazon (Paperback)
I really liked this book. It is very well written and very entertaining. It describes the author's travels in the Venezuelan Amazon during the late 80's. The author went along the Casiquiare channel (which joints the Orinoco and Amazon's river basins), and then down the Pacimoni and Baria rivers to the foothills of Cerro Neblina, along one of the most desolate places in the Amazon. The objective was to cross into Brazil from the Baria river and then along the Maturaca channel, meeting the Yanomami indian communities that live along the Maturaca, however, they were unable to find the exit in the maze of jungle river channels. The author returned to the Casiquiare, and then travelled upstream into the Siapa and Emoni rivers. In the high Emoni they trekked for a couple of days in the jungle until reaching an isolated Yanomami settlement. All the places visited are described in great detail, with big emphasis on their natural history. I found this book much better than Stark and Murcutt's "Along the River that Flows Uphill".
