About this product
- DescriptionThe Casiquiare is unique. There is other river like it on the planet. Somehow it manages to unite the two river systems of the Orico and the Amazon that should, by rights, be entirely separate, and the Casiquiare performs the astonishing feat of flowing up and over the watershed that divides them. Richard Starks and Miriam Murcutt travelled along the Casiquiare at the behest of the Royal Geographical Society - and in the footsteps of exploring greats like Alexander von Humboldt and Aime Bonpland - to gather information about the river and the fierce Yamani tribe that still maintains its austere and primitive lifestyle in the region.
- Author BiographyRichard Starks is a journalist, author and traveller. He worked as a journalist for the Financial Post in Canada and has written for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Miriam Murcutt is a writer and editor. She has worked as a writer and editor on magazines in London and Canada.
