    This sounds good, Annie. Some of the earliest fictional adventures stories I read (in about junior high) were set in the Amazon. A non-fiction one is sure to tap into that exotic stage. I downloaded the sample.

    When I looked this up on Kindle it wasn’t available there. Bear had to loan me his copy, which was generous since he treasures his books as much as I do mine. Nice to know it’s now available. Thanks. Got another Review coming up on the Amazon, maybe tomorrow.
