Last New World: The Conquest of the Amazon Frontier
Mac Margolis (au). Most of the world’s nations conquered their frontiers by the late 19th century. Now, a hundred years later, Brazil, South America’s most dynamic nation, is pursuing its own version of Manifest Destiny, & settlers, cattlemen, drifters, & adventurers have moved into the Amazon at a furious pace. The result is a contradictory landscape of thriving boom towns & forests aflame, where settlers discover new opportunities while squatters, Indians, & rubber tappers battle for their lives, where gold mines devour whole mountains & poison the rivers with mercury. This is a story not only of waste & ruin, but also about those who are trying to pick up the pieces & endure. Illustrations.
