A great adventure--the first expedition ever to run the entire 4,100 mile course of the world's largest river, the Amazon. They encounter many obstacles: the deadly whitewater rapids; being captured by Maoist guerillas; escaping harm when they camped near a cocaine factory; weather that could change 40 degrees in a matter of minutes, and much more. 32 pages of photos.
