Detailed Product Description
New York, Knopf, 2020, true first USA edition. 403 pages, 33 color photos, printed  in high definition on glossy coated paper stock. Hardcover with dust jacket. New. 

A captivating new book from Wade Davis, an award winning, best-selling author and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence for more than a decade, that brings vividly to life the story of the great Río Magdalena, illuminating Colombia's complex past, present, and future.

Travelers often become enchanted with the first country that captures their hearts and gives them license to be free. For Wade Davis, it was Colombia. Now in a masterly new book, Davis tells of his travels on the mighty Magdalena, the river that made possible the nation. Along the way, he finds a people who have overcome years of conflict precisely because of their character, informed by an enduring spirit of place, and a deep love of a land that is home to the greatest ecological and geographical diversity on the planet. 

Only in Colombia can a traveler wash ashore in a coastal desert, follow waterways through wetlands as wide as the sky, ascend narrow tracks through dense tropical forests, and reach verdant Andean valleys rising to soaring ice-clad summits. Both a corridor of commerce and a fountain of culture, the wellspring of Colombian music, literature, poetry, and prayer, the Magdalena has served in dark times as the graveyard of the nation. And yet, always, it returns as a river of life. 

At once an absorbing adventure and an inspiring tale of hope and redemption, Magdalena braids together memoir, history, and journalism to tell the epic story of Colombia.

Wade Davis is the author of these marvelous books, which we have carried:  

  • The Serpent and the Rainbow about the zombies of Haiti. 
  • One River: Explorations and Discoveries in the Amazon Rain Forest
  • Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest.

And many others.
