One thousand miles up the Orinoco, along the length of the Casiquiare to Rio Negro and the Amazon. Traveling along the route of La Condamine and Alexander von Humboldt, who explored the region in 1799, the authors' many adventures include a brush with guerrillas across the Venezuelan border in Colombia, encounters with the Yanomami, and the travails of traveling by canoe with their guide, his extended family, and a crew of biologists. The Casiquiare joins the Orinoco River to the Amazon.
