Sibert Honor winner Sy Montgomery explores how tiny fish living in the Amazon river, called piabas, can help preserve not only the rainforest and its often misunderstood inhabitants, but the fate of our entire environment. This installment in the Scientists in the Field series includes gorgeous full-colour photography. "Montgomery thoroughly mines the social and economic effects the piabas have on locals alongside an in-depth exploration of the Amazon river and its ecosystems. The science and sociology are interesting and unusual, and the narrative itself enthralling... A true-to-form installment in a valuable series." -Booklist, starred review Considered the "lungs of the world," the Amazon provides a full fifth of the world's oxygen, and every year unsustainable human practices destroy 2.7 million acres of it. What can be done to help? That's where Project Piaba comes in. Join the award-winning author Sy Montgomery and the photographer Keith Ellenbogen as they traverse the river and rainforest to discover how tiny fish, called piabas, can help preserve the Amazon, its animals, and the rich legacy of its people. Amazon Adventure is an eye-opening - and ultimately hopeful - exploration of how humanity's practices are affecting and shaping not only the Amazon, but our entire environment.
