From their rise in the high Andes of Peru, the two sister rivers, Urubamba and Apurimac, join to form the Amazon, the world's largest and most powerful river, crossing an entire continent in search of the sea. This book traces Francois Odendaal's three expeditions to raft this extraordinary river. It is a story of adventure, courage and personal experience, as well as a geographical, environmental and historical celebration of the continent of South America.
