Publisher's Summary

Take a journey on a giant raft with Joam Garral down 800 leagues on the Amazon. Garral, a Brazilian, lives on a thriving fazenda (plantation) in the Peruvian frontier with his loving family. But his daughter's imminent marriage to a Brazilian army surgeon compels him to return to his homeland to face the dark secrets of his past. Will his love and dedication to his family help him in his struggle to right injustice? Will a strange encoded message be deciphered in time to save him?

    "Oh dear!!!"

    Excellent story - Jules Verne can never be faulted, but the whole experience was ruined by the whining voice of the American narrator. Got as far as chapter 2 and gave up with it.

    "Horrible reading"

    If only the reader would not have used a stupid accent for certain characters-which is not only annoying but cannot be understood what is said-, this would be great. I really cannot make out what he's saying and so could not listen to the book.
