WONDERFUL travel/adventure/exploration book from the days when exploring meant traversing terrains unknown - not a visit to a new coffee shop.
A Naturalist on the River Amazons by the intrepid HW Bates is worth buyong for thr frontis illustration alone [see gallery pic] in my opinion! The epitome of intrepid yet bumbling exploration here Bates is mobbed by toucans.
