Email this review


An engineer's wife tells her side of the story, in a fascinating account of experiences in the interior of Brazil, Patagonia, up the Amazon, in central Panama, in central Guatemala. She has put into this the same warmth and color and sense of drama that characterized Suwannee River. She developed, bit by bit, a profession of her own, drawing and painting, in careful detail, the flora and fauna of the jungles she loved. And she has drawn with her pen, equally vivid pictures of the life and the natives, and has brought in enough of the factual background to give one a sense of sharing these experiences in modern frontier adventure.
