    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 16.95

    From the Introduction As far as Amerindians are concerned, the land between the Orinoco and the Amazon has always been Guiana , the ?Land of Many Waters?.

  • Wild Coastby John Gimlette

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 13.32

    Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2012 Between the Orinoco and the Amazon lies a fabulous forested land, barely explored.

  • Theatre Of Fishby John Gimlette

    Random House 2011; US$ 15.98

    Random House 2011; US$ 14.38

    By the end of World War II much of Western Europe was in chaos. The future of our world had been contested here, in the hinterlands of France and across the German plains.

    Random House 2011; US$ 15.98

    Paraguay - the name conjures up everything most exotic and extreme in South America. It's a place of hellish jungles, dictators, fraudsters and Nazis, utopian experiments, missionaries and lurid coups. It's not a place for the timid tourist. It doesn't even have its own guidebook. But Paraguay, as revealed in this outstanding new travel book, is among... more...

  • At the Tomb of the Inflatable Pigby John Gimlette

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 17.95

    A wildly humorous account of the author's travels across Paraguay?South America's darkly fabled, little-known ?island surrounded by land.? Rarely visited by tourists and barely touched by global village sprawl, Paraguay remains a mystery to outsiders. Think of this small nation and your mind is likely to jump to Nazis, dictators, and soccer. Now,... more...
