Bruce Parry

Explorer Bruce Parry embarks on an epic journey down the Amazon - the world's greatest river, its largest forest, the most bio-diverse habitat on the planet and home to some of the last uncontacted tribes left on Earth. This book, which will accompany a landmark TV series, will follow Bruce on a breathtaking journey from the Amazon's vast mouth on Brazil's Atlantic Coast to its source in the Peruvian Andes. He will travel over ten thousand miles, by foot, light aircraft and boat to stay with the tribes that live silently beneath the rainforest canopy. He will explore eight countries and tell the stories of the people that inhabit the greatest forest on Earth. The book will seek to show the Amazon as it is now, at the beginning of the 21st Century; a complex, shifting environment; home to millions of people; the front line in an environmental war; the lungs of our planet. It will combine adventure and exploration with Bruce Parry's unique brand of immersive anthropology. He will live with the tribes and share their lives, telling the changing story of Amazonia and the people who live and work there.

Bruce Parry started out his adult life as a Royal Marines officer at the age of 18. He then worked as an expedition leader, and now combines his love of the outdoors and film with his award-winning documentaries. He presented the BBC documentary Tribe and is the author of the accompanying book.
