Chronicling the dramatic history of the Brazilian Amazon during the Second World War, Seth Garfield provides fresh perspectives on contemporary environmental debates. His multifaceted analysis explains how the Amazon became the object of geopolitical rivalries, state planning, media coverage, popular fascination, and social conflict. In need of rubber, a vital war material, the United States spent millions of dollars to revive the Amazon's rubber trade. In the name of development and national security, Brazilian officials implemented public programs to engineer the hinterland's transformation. Migrants from Brazil's drought-stricken Northeast flocked to the Amazon in search of work. In defense of traditional ways of life, longtime Amazon residents sought to temper outside intervention. Garfield's environmental history offers an integrated analysis of the struggles among distinct social groups over resources and power in the Amazon, as well as the repercussions of those wartime conflicts in the decades to come.

Even today there remain tribes in the far reaches of the Amazon rainforest that have avoided contact with modern civilization. Deliberately hiding from the outside world, they are the unconquered, the last survivors of an ancient culture that predates the arrival of Columbus. Journalist Scott Wallace chronicles an expedition into the Amazon's uncharted depths, discovering the rainforest's secrets while moving ever closer to a possible encounter with one such tribe of seldom-glimpsed warriors known to repulse all intruders with showers of deadly arrows. On assignment for National Geographic, Wallace joins Brazilian explorer Sydney Possuelo at the head of a 34-man team that ventures deep into the unknown in search of the tribe. Possuelo's mission is to protect the Arrow People, but the information he needs in order to do so can only be gleaned by entering a world of permanent twilight beneath the forest canopy.--From publisher description.

Artist and musician, Joel Harris, should have been satisfied living his dreams. But he found himself feeling distracted and unsatisfied by modern American life. He wanted those elusive answers to life's questions - answers he had been looking for his whole life - from his childhood as a Mormon, through his service in the Marine Corps, and through his travels to Europe and Asia. Above all else - he wanted to find TRUTH. His book is a personal narrative of his search for truth. It is an account of a journey that took him into a small Shipibo village in Peru on the edge of the Amazon Rain Forest. There he worked with plant medicines and shamanic healers, encountered his deepest fears, looked into the darkest corners of his being and discovered TRUTH. Reviews: "An intimate portrait of self-discovery." (Kirkus Review) "I deeply and sincerely thank you for your work, it was very powerful for me." (J. Macin, Jiu-jitsu World Champion) "Anyone interested in personal transformation should read this." (N. Mosnar; starred review *****) "If you can't live this adventure yourself, read Joel Harris's memoir, In Search Of Truth." (L. Ransom; starred review *****)
