Summary:

As a young man, John Alvarez is a bad boy, so it’s no surprise when a judge finally gives him the choice between going to prison and joining the Marine Corps. Alvarez reluctantly decides on the latter, not realizing that he will discover himself and find a home in the Corps. Shipped off to Vietnam, Alvarez leads his own band of bad boys—Iron Raven—into the jungle. They become the terror of their enemies and always the first choice for the most dangerous missions. On one such mission, the brain child of a couple of CIA ops, Alvarez and his squad are cut off from escape by their CIA handlers and are left to fight their way out alone or die. Only Alvarez survives—but his revenge upon the men who abandoned him and his brothers lands him in prison for life. After twenty years of incarceration, Alvarez is offered his freedom, but only if he agrees to undertake another suicide mission. If he’s going to be a free man, Alvarez must become the bodyguard of a Mr. Standish and lead him on a journey into the mysterious Amazonian kingdom ruled by the devil himself. It is only in the heart of the jungle that Alvarez discovers that he has accepted a mission with only two possible outcomes—redemption or death.

Summary:

If the Indian Wolan hadn’t talked with the trees, or if the trees hadn’t talked back, my cousin Bebe would be safely nestled in her New York City apartment, instead of hiding out with her child, Wolan’s son, deep in the Amazonian rainforest. I’m Bebe’s cousin. Like Bebe, I’m an anthropologist, sent by our relatives to fetch Bebe back after she was charged with murder. It was true. Together with Wolan she had murdered four gold miners who were polluting the Amazon. I thought I could slip her out of the country if she wanted to return. But did she? C.

Summary:

Before primatologist Patricia Chapple Wright became the world's foremost expert on lemurs, she was enchanted by another primate—Aotus, the owl monkey, or "monkey of the night." But along her journey to discover the behavior of these unique nocturnal creatures, Wright finds more than she expected about family, human nature, and herself. It all starts in a New York City pet shop when Wright and her husband buy an owl monkey whose lively and rambunctious ways soon lead the young couple to South America to acquire him a mate. But while Wright's monkey family is growing, her own begins to fall apart when her husband leaves her and her daughter. Undeterred by her lack of academic experience, Wright sets out as a single mother to study primate behavior in the wild, including a year at a research station in the remote jungles of Peru. There she encounters jaguars, poisonous snakes, army ants, and massive floods that threaten her and her daughter's lives, as well as moments of great clarity and beauty. From New York City in the 1960s to the depths of the Amazon in the 1970s and 80s, this story of one woman's transformation from Brooklyn housewife to an accomplished scientist will captivate fans of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas. High Moon Over the Amazon is a thrilling memoir of adventure, inspiration, and of falling in love with a species not so unlike our own.

Life can be such a bummer at times. For the sexy Sandy, disgruntled Bonnie, and perpetually pregnant Cathy, what burns them is their husbands’ annual hunting trip. In an effort to forever end these hunts, these three girls plan a secret caper wherein they’ll become Amazon lady warriors and conquer the very town where their husbands’ hunt.

Along our way, we join Elderhostelers on a dinosaur dig conducted by a Blackfoot Indian paleontologist. We enter the strange and secretive lands of Hutterites where we attempt a rescue. We even help a frustrated psychologist-author complete his book. Best of all, the Amazon ladies forever end their husbands’ annual hunting trip. Or do they? Join us on this most fantastic trip—which is guaranteed to be a “no bummer.”

He is forced by the Brothers to do hard work. However, he's inhumanly strong and he move and run much faster than any of the Brothers, as well, he can jump incredibly well. One day, the Abbot who is the head of the Brothers gives him some instructions and a little money. The man is then sent on a journey which leads him to Brazil There he takes a river boat up the Amazon to the city of Manaus where he obtains supplies, and continues by canoe, up the river. One horrible night, he becomes sick and spits his teeth out, one by one. However, over the next month, he grows new, meat tearing teeth as he also grows even stronger, along with fur all over his face. These changes force him to continue his trip at night. As per the directions the Abbot gave him, he paddles up the Amazon until he finds a waterfall. There he climbs the waterfall cliff until he meets an individual who looks like him. The meeting triggers memories and the man suddenly realizes that he's Vekor, the King of the Voren. The Voren are a wolf like group of people living in a hidden part of the Amazon basin. The Voren don't believe that the newcomer is actually Vekor and he must fight the strongest of the Voren warriors in a death match. Vekor wins and becomes the King of the Voren. Vekor finds himself also mated with Avera. From Avera, he learns that he must prove that he's truly Vekor. In order to do this he must engage in a series of tests, which if he fails any of them, will result in his death. If he passes the testing, he'll then lead the Voren back through the Gate of Exile and away from their jungle home of more than a thousand years. Unfortunately, Vekor has no idea where to find the gate of exile. As he passes each test, the objects that he takes give him information about who he really is and what he must do. As he lives among the Voren, Vekor participates in the hunts that the males conduct to feed the village and also in the Moon Dances that are a vital ceremonial part of the Voren life. He is better than any of the males at the warrior tasks and also better than any of the males at the ritual Moon Dances. He learns that a group of people called Avarra exiled the Voren, many years before, and he must lead the Voren back to face the Avarra, who are a tall, handsome, nearly hairless people with a hidden secret that only the Avarra Science Alklar and Vekor know. The Voren have a temple in the jungle and the temple contains a time line. The time line ends after the next Moon Dance and the Voren must follow Vekor back through the Gate of Exile, their religion demands it. Vekor must lead the Voren warriors against the science of the Avarra and then he and his wolf men will breed with the Avarra!

Summary:

In the eight pieces that make up Land Without History, first published in Portuguese in 1909, Euclides da Cunha offers a rare look into twentieth century Amazonia, and the consolidation of South American nation states. Mixing scientific jargon and poetic language, the essays in Land Without History provide breathtaking descriptions of the Amazonian rivers and the ever-changing nature that surrounds them. Brilliantly translated by Ronald Sousa, Land Without History offers a view of the ever changing ecology of the Amazon, and a compelling testimony to the Brazilian colonial enterprise, and its imperialist tendencies with regard to neighboring nation-states.
