Wild Amazon by Nick Gordon

Book Description

Amazonia is, without doubt, the greatest rainforest on earth. Covering two and three quarter million square miles, it crosses the political borders of nine countries. Some 50 percent of the world's terrestrial species, including rare - and often unique - animals and plants are found here, while during the rainy season, a staggering one fifth of all fresh water on the planer flows along the mighty river Amazon.Nick Gordon's photographs give us an unrivalled insight into that wilderness. Having lived in Amazonia for more than ten years, filming and photographing the wildlife and indigenous peoples of the area, he has amassed a unique and wide-ranging collection of images. Written in a lively and accessible style, the accompanying text is both informative and entertaining. Features in Wildlife, Travel and Photography magazines.
