Abstract:

Into the Amazon is the revealing stropy of the people who live in the forest: the rubber tappers, river people, small landholders and natives. Augusta Dwyer not only spoke to them; she lived among them, sharing their meals and their way of life. In addition, she was one of the few journalists to become close friends with Chico Mendes, interviewing him on a number of occasions, the last time shortly before his death. Her account of the struggle of the people of the rain forest for survival and dignity against terrible odds is at once wonderfully evocative and deeply disturbing. --
