Travel Wings by Nancy Shattuck
The author challenges readers to find their own travel wings in this humorous account of a trip to the largest remaining virgin rain forest in the Amazon basin. John her and 11 plucky strangers from 5 different countries who speak no language in common as they trek down the Andes eastern face in load trucks and enter the heart of Peru's Manu National Park by canoe. If you love "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy," you'll be happy to find the end of the universe right here on planet Earth. For the totally foolhardy, this book makes a great survival guide.
