Book excerpt: Imagine traveling thousands of miles downriver by boat and encountering deadly poison dart frogs and anacondas as well as friendly pink river dolphins and manatees. A first-person narrative guides readers through the twists and turns of South America's famous Amazon River. Colorful maps and photographs on each page aid navigation, while text offers interesting facts about the peoples and places along the route to the Atlantic Ocean. Important history, geography, and science topics are highlighted, while the uncertain future of the Amazon rainforest and its wildlife is particularly stressed.
