Audible Editor Reviews

Scarcely a century ago, much of the Amazon basin remained unmapped and inaccessible to outsiders. H. M. Tomlinson’s groundbreaking Amazon travelogue harkens back to the sense of wonder and discovery that characterized the age of exploration, while nevertheless maintaining the humility and cultural self-awareness of more modern travel narratives. Indeed, Tomlinson’s tale, like those of his followers - Michael Palin and Bill Bryson among them - is rife with lighthearted anecdotes and good-humored curiosity. Tomlinson is personified by performer Ron Keith, at turns awestruck, broodingly cautious, and jokingly self-deprecating as he captures the dapper demeanor of the fish-out-of-water Welshman, struggling to reckon with his rainforest climes. Keith is renowned for his clean audiobook recordings, the product of attention to detail and close collaboration with studio engineers.

Publisher's Summary

What would it be like to cast aside the industrial bustle of the early 20th century to hop a freighter bound for the verdant jungles and untamed wildlife of the fabled Amazon? H.M. Tomlinson did just that, trading the streets of Swansea, Wales, for the open sea of the Atlantic. Thanks to Tomlinson's sharp eye for detail, his spellbinding account of this 1909 journey is much more than a standard travel narrative.
