The author emphasizes--with charts, drawings, photographs and scientific analysis -- the fact that the most complex of the ecospheres we inhabit is the most fragile in the face of our peculiar "uses".

This work also combines the "mystery" and breath-taking facts with the laboratory and scientific conclusions. It documents the jungle as a source of awe, but not ONLY for romance; for its science, and its necessity.

We are burning great paintings to cook our prepackaged unrecognizable dinners. We are living lives our descendants will have difficulty forgiving us, if any are left. ( )
