Swallowing Amazon

ByTurlough Martin

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
One man had a dream: to go off the beaten track and explore the real Amazon, native style. Ignoring the imminent monsoon, the certainty of peril and the sheer stupidity of his endeavour, he corralled a couple of Aussies and another Brit to plunge headlong into the jungle after him. Told with raw, brutal honesty, Martin's true tale sweeps you along their journey, painting a picture as vivid, rich and unpredictable as the Amazon itself. Evoking the humour and misadventure of Jerome's 'Three Men in a Boat' in a more modern, exotic and infinitely more foolish, lethal context, this most intimate and compelling of accounts enthralls and entertains from one end of the river to the other.
