The Amazon Heist

Journey to the fascinating world of the Amazon rainforest as seen through the eyes of the native peoples, artisans, students and tourists. Anacondas, caimans, monkeys, shamans, yucca harvests, river cruises, legends and much more come to life in this amusing yet suspenseful book. Elizabeth Long, an Anthropology professor, and her group of students travel to the Amazon jungle for a study abroad trip. In this bold adventure, they encounter life as never before imagined, living with a tribe on the world's mightiest river. The voyage takes a sudden turn when the discovery of diamonds in the area leads to a robbery. It is an event that will cause the students' lives to converge with two elderly British tourists and two local men who work at the diamond mine, weaving them together in a race to recover the diamonds before time runs out. The book unearths the spirit of the Amazon peoples and recreates the beauty of the rainforest - the sights, smells, tastes, sounds, and dangers of this unique place. A riveting chronicle. Most entertaining is the way in which humorous tales, changing attitudes and the straddling of two very different worlds are revealed by following the visitors and natives' days.
