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.
