Detailed Product Description
New York, Atheneum, 1986, 1st edition. 374 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. But for former owner's stamp, book is Fine.

From Publishers Weekly
The ostensible goal was to find pyramids reputed to be deep in the jungle of northwest Brazil; it was reason enough to make the trip for American adventurer Zalis and his sidekick Tano, who had plenty of experience in offbeat travel. With an elderly German guide, Kurt Gluck, they went from Manaus to Barcelos by passenger ship; there they transferred to Gluck's skiff and headed upstream on the Rio Negro. They got lost among the numerous tributaries, but kept on until shortage of food and fuel forced them to return. Zalis's lively account of this casual journey is interspersed with reminiscences of his long friendship with Tano and a colorful portrait of the counterculture during the early '70s. This is a travel story whose appeal largely derives from its offbeat protagonists.
