Illustrated from photographs taken by the author "When Mr. Algot Lange told me he was going to the headwaters of the Amazon, I was particularly interested because, once, years ago, I had turned my own mind in that direction ... He started in fine spirits: buoyant, strong, vigorous. When I saw him again in New York, a year or so later, on his return, he was an emaciated fever-wreck, placing one foot be3fore the other only with much exertion and indeed barely able to hold himself erect ... The region of Mr. Lange's almost fatal experiences, the region of the Javary River (the boundary between Brazil and Perus), is one of the most formidable and least known portions of the South American continent ..." -from the introduction.
