This is a challenging, important and highly readable book, which brings alive the human voices behind a major environmental tragedy.

They will travel to the Amazon to hear about the mysterious transformations of Jaguar-Man; and then to central Africa to discover what happened when the Most Beautiful Song in the Forest was destroyed. The book also contains a wealth of factual information about the original forest peoples' ways of life.
