a must read for any husband, answering the age old question: How do I get away from my wife? It is simple, go to the Amazon basin, go again, go again, go again, go again, go again, make up a theory and go again ( )

A neat companion to "The Lost City of Z", but I think it might have been hard to follow if I hadn't read that one first. ( )

The lot of the one left behind is ever the harder. Because of that—because she as my partner in everything shared with me the burden of the work recorded in these pages—this book is dedicated to my wife "CHEEKY"
First words
"What a story!" (Prologue)
When Diego Alvarez struggled landwards through the Atlantic swell in a welter of wreckage from the disintegrating caravel, it was to land, exhausted, on a shore absolutely unknown to this sixteenth-century Portuguese.
