'EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE, HILARIOUS EXPERIENCES' DAILY MAIL
EXPLORER AND TRIBE PRESENTER BRUCE PARRY EMBARKS ON A BREATHTAKING JOURNEY OF OVER 6,000 KM BY FOOT, LIGHT AIRCRAFT AND BOAT DOWN THE AMAZON RIVER.
Along the way Bruce meets the men and women who live and work there. From tribes that have never been contacted before to illegal miners stripping the Amazon rainforest for traces of gold. And in his own uniquely immersive way, he unearths their fascinating stories.
Bruce brings alive this complex and shifting landscape, which is home to millions of people, countless species of plants and animals, and which is now the front line in a major environmental struggle. The truths he discovers are often frightening, but always eye-opening, and they remind us that the Amazon's fate touches us all.
