    For 20,000 miles, Peter Matthiessen crisscrossed the South American wilderness, traveling from the Amazonian rain forests to Machu Picchu high in the Andes, down to the edge of the world at Tierra del Fuego and back. In the course of his journey he followed the trails of old explorers, encountered river bandits, wild tribesmen, and the evidence of ancient ruins, and discovered a fossilized snout of a giant unknown crocodilian hidden in the depths of the jungle on the wild mountain rivers of Peru.

    Andy says: "A chronicle without drama"

    Overall

    This is a well written and well read list of informed observations but there is little in the way of story or drama. The book is aptly titled. It is a chronicle and although Matthiessen writes beautifully descriptive narrative the book is more academic than literary. The words dull and flat come to mind.
