Love, adventure, triumphs and torment, this book will forever change the way you see the natural world.
When invited to go to France with her new man, she didn’t expect to find herself in South America hacking through an impenetrable jungle, sleeping beneath the stars, and living an extraordinary and isolated life in the steaming, humid rainforest of the French Amazon. But that is exactly what happened.
Placing her previous life of comfort into the far distant reaches of her mind, she expected the adventure to last for a few weeks. However, this drifted into a few years, until she felt completely at home in the sweltering heat and anaconda-infested rivers of this amazing country.
In Wild Roots Donna documents her growing love for the Amazon forest, while making some attempt to depict the awe, beauty, and wonder of this always chaotic, often bizarre and constantly frustrating place, so that you can appreciate how it captured her heart.
