EXPEDITION TUMUC-HUMAC

An account of a hazardous and successful expedition into the jungles of French Guiana, with a man and woman for partners, leads to the High Site of the Tumuc-Humacs, a feat only possible with the friendship the explorers earned while living with the Indians. Maziere approached the Indians with openness and was rewarded. Near starvation, the party was saved by Emerllions and later the Oyanas acted as hosts and guides. A new horizon viewing colonial policy as well.
