Product Details

With a wicked eye for absurdities, Gordon MacCreagh recounts his adventures with eight 'Eminent Scientificos' as they set out to explore the Amazon in 1923 without any idea of what lies ahead of them: rapids, malaria, monkey stew, and 'dangerous savages.' A combination of Twain’s The Innocents Abroad and a cautionary tale for explorers, this is one of the most honest accounts ever written of a scientific expedition.
