Take flight with the colourful exotic birds, leap around with the New World monkeys, take a stroll with the forest floor dwellers, and meet the ferocious predators that live in and around this massive river.

Find out about the many animals that live in its waters, from flesh-eating piranha and the largest freshwater fish arapaima, to giant otters and the Amazon's amazing river dolphins.

Read all about the ancient civilizations that used to inhabit the area, the myths and legends they created, and the indigenous peoples who call the forest their home today.

You will also find out how the modern-day industry is affecting the Amazon and what is being done to conserve and preserve this amazing ecosystem. Eyewitness Amazon is the perfect book for any child who wants to know more about the world's most famous river and its rainforest.
