(1991)
A novel by

 
 
Library Journal
Popescu has transcribed three years of interviews with National Geographic photographer and writer Loren McIntyre, creating a compelling narrative which chronicles McIntyre's experiences with the Mayoruna Indians and his quest for the source of the Amazon River. The first sections recount McIntyre's immersion among the Mayoruna tribe over a two-month period. Vivid description and the seamless flow between McIntyre's personal notes and the author's narration are particularly effective. McIntyre's interest in locating the Amazon's source conveniently coincides with the Mayoruna Indians' search to find their own roots, which increases the significance of his quest. Unfortunately, the account of his discovery lacks the momentum of the earlier sections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/91-- Elizabeth DeMarco, Ononda ga Cty. P.L., N.Y.
