Beautiful writing, epic story...one of the Classics I absorbed as a kid through the agencies of Classics Illustrated Comic Books, and now one of the few Classics I have actually read in novel form! A wonderful, absorbing narrative even though I remembered the gist of the plot. I enjoyed it immensely!
A brilliant and beautiful tale of a man escaping a political coup in a South American Country by hiding in the tropical forest in a primeval Indian village. He comes across a girl/woman, the last of her species that lives in the forest protecting it and the animals from the local tribesmen. The story is of the relationship and the events that follow.
I am not finished yet but the book is beautiful and I will keep you updated. I know my friend liked the Orinoco River and finished the book.
