    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.

    The wilderness - forest, desert, glacier, jungle - has been the scene of the past century's most exciting stories, inspiring many of its greatest writers. Gripping short works are delivered by equally compelling narration in this volume from the Adrenaline series.

    One rainy morning in the winter of 1909, a man with an altogether average look about him quit his job at the London Morning Leader, kissed his wife and children goodbye, and took a train to Swansea in Wales, where he talked his way aboard a freighter bound for somewhere in the upper reaches of the Amazon. Three years later, Tomlinson published a book about his adventures. This book made him famous.

    'The right good book,' says Mr. Tomlinson, 'is always a book of travel: it is about a life's journey.'
