The Last New World: The Conquest of the Amazon Frontier
This book is an account of the terrible toll of frontier conquest in the Amazon: huge forest tracts laid waste to make crude iron; Indians and rubber trappers in constant conflict with developers; gold mines devouring whole landscapes and poisoning the rivers with mercury. It is also a story about people, the ranchers, settlers, Indians, and foresters who inhabit Amazonia and are there to stay.
