About this book
Subtitled, "Travels On South America's Untamed Edge". Gimlette travels to Guyana and discovers his ancestral colonial history, one of brutal, cruel and uncomfortable truths. From the author of "The Inflatable Pig", it has 16 pages of illustrations. 'A completely fascinating book.' William Boyd
Between the Orinoco and the Amazon lies a fabulous forested land, barely explored. Much of Guiana seldom sees sunlight, and new species are often tumbling out of the dark trees. Beautiful and occasionally brutal, it is one of the great forgotten corners of the Earth: the Wild Coast. The author sets off along this coast, gathering up its story.
