A Young Reader's Look at the Last Frontier (River). Published March 1998 by Turtleback Books Distributed by Demco Media.

This book was recommended in the Story of the World book we're reading.

He has canoed many rivers and written books about those journeys. He has written about whales, manatees and polar pears and is now working on books about Jack London in the Klondike gold rush and the ancient roads of the Inca empire. This book was recommended in the Story of the World book we're reading.

It was published by Caroline House in 1991. Condition: Good-pages show slight handling; binding tight; back end page has been torn out; covers and DJ in nice shape. I do combine shipping.

Dramatic full-color photographs illustrate this fascinating firsthand account of a journey through the Brazilian state of Rondonia, the heart of the Amazon. Along the way the authors meet Indians, rubber tappers, and gold miners and witness the controversial burning of the jungle by the new settlers. This stunning and thought-provoking book gives young readers a unique look at the endangered Amazon rain forest and the people who call it home.

This book is aimed at giving a brief picture of the Amazon to a young reader. It focuses on a few aspects, such as: the indians living in the Amazon, the gold rush around the southern Amazon, the river and its dolphins, and the rubber boom and the railroad built to transport rubber.

The book is written as a travelogue, describing the author's trip chronologically. It is simplistic, of course, as any book for children should be, but it provides some vivid pictures of the region. About half of the pictures are very good, the rest should have been reconsidered.

My main criticism is that he associates the colonists as being evil doers destroying the forest; it is hardly ever an evil vs good fight. Anyways, I would recommend it especially to a family with children planning a trip to the Amazon as a way to wet the appetite.

This book was a very interesting book. I thought it was really sad when Peter Lourie passed by the river side and there were little kids learning and it was their school. The children were sick and skinny. Peter Lourie explained that their parents were very poor and they didn't have any money to buy clothes or food. I thought it was really cool when they followed the guy that collected the latex. I thought it was interesting when he cut a V into the tree and the latex dripped into a cup. When I read that the gold was found in the river I thought how did the gold form. I don't know how it did but it was a pretty amazing thing. When Peter Lourie went to the Indians I thought it was really interesting the way they caught their fish they poisoned the water so the fish would go to shore and they would pick them up. If they were still able to move they would spear the fish. This book really taught me a lot I really consider you to read one of Peter Lourie's books!

This book is a beautifully illustrated, fun, and interesting book. The pictures are so amazing and it feels like I am really there, (or wish that I was there). This book is a educational book because it has maps that show where the author, Peter Lourie, went when he was exploring. It tells what cities are there, and also where the bodies of water are. This is a fun book because the author, Peter Lourie, gives wonderful writing like this:

Now as we left the tribal outpost and headed back the way we had come, we glided down river with the soft, slow, ancient current.

An interesting part was when the Indians put the poison in the water where the fish would swim and it would be easier to catch the fish.

This is why this book is the best!

This is a good book because it gives a lot of detail of what is going on in it.
