About this book

The guide provides copious information on Amazonas, Para, Acre, Rondonia, Roraima, Amapa and North of Mato Grosso. It explores the villages and alleys of the cities discovering the human aspect of the Amazon. Contrary to the appearance that the region is 'empty', the sharp observer can find another Brazil, with different cultural values from the rest of the country, people that speak many languages and know the forest like no-one else. The Amazon discovery adventure goes beyond the mere ecological aspect; culture and anthropology are in every corner of the few streets in the region and in the many curves of the endless river.
