As the Rio Afuá ferry wends its way along the Amazon, Sean Taylor takes in not merely the sights and sounds of this extraordinary landscape but additionally the stories from the males and girls he meets. Together, with Fernando Vilela's dramatic, color-saturated illustrations, they reveal the Amazon peoples' beliefs and way of life. From sly jaguars as well as the slowest of sloths to spine-tingling giant serpents and white-suited strangers, his retellings teem with legendary beings, vivid color, earthy comedy, and also the mysteries of the rainforest. Notes and a glossary give additional information relating to the region.
