This book features the uncommon quality of bringing together original scientific knowledge on fruits and useful plants of the Amazon forest and the sensibility to detect the deep interaction between life, traditional knowledge of our forests and folk culture. With its language at the same time accessible, pleasant and practical, the book has become a vehicle to disseminate information that is fundamental to the future of the Amazon and to bring alive the dream of a development model that is economically and socially fair, and that respects the environment.
