About the author (1996)

Malcolm Bosse (1927 - 2002) wrote numerous best-selling novels for adults, including The War Lord, and many highly acclaimed novels for young readers. Of Deep Dream of the Rainforest, Publishers Weekly said: "[Bosse's] gripping adventure story withstands comparison to Kidnapped, Treasure Island, and Robinson Crusoe, and is far subtler than each of them.
