Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

For almost a decade, Gordon has lived in the Amazon basin among the indigenous people, reaching an understanding of the area and its inhabitants, and capturing on camera the dazzling array of rare species who make their home in and around the rainforest.'

From Publishers Weekly:

Intrepid filmmaker Gordon has spent 11 years in the Amazonian rain forests making wildlife documentaries. Through this detailed account of reconnoitering locations, hiring local guides, setting up dangerous film towers, negotiating with indigenous populations and adjusting to local diets, Gordon provides a behind-the-scenes look at movie-making in the jungle. Set in Venezuela and Brazil, the book provides vivid descriptions of the tremendous labor that can go into just a few minutes of film, such as the digging of sand pits from which to stake out terrapin turtles laying their eggs. Though the title highlights two of Gordon's projects, one on the world's largest tarantula, the other on the world's smallest monkey, a plethora of other animals appear as wellAincluding otters, anacondas, jaguars, jabiru storks and toucans. Gordon's more unusual experiencesAsniffing a revolting hallucinogen with a Piaroa medicine man and witnessing the Satar? Indians' painful initiation ceremony, which involves two-inch-long venomous antsAlighten the sometimes repetitive descriptions of the difficulty of transporting equipment and the frustrating slipups of an occasionally incompetent staff. Gordon's conversational tone is appealing, and while his descriptions of the scenery around him never soar, he does a fine job of drawing the reader into the ins and outs of his job. Photos.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
