Publisher's Summary

One rainy morning in the winter of 1909, a man with an altogether average look about him quit his job at the London Morning Leader, kissed his wife and children goodbye, and took a train to Swansea in Wales, where he talked his way aboard a freighter bound for somewhere in the upper reaches of the Amazon. Three years later, Tomlinson published a book about his adventures. This book made him famous. 'The right good book,' says Mr. Tomlinson, 'is always a book of travel: it is about a life's journey.'

Good story, annoying narration

I have enjoyed reading a great many classic travel narration books spanning travel and exploration in the 18th and 19th century. This book is a really solid story and written with a splash of humor that reminded me of Twain. But, I found the his voice annoying which got in the way of the story. He read well but his vocal quality was off putting to me.
