River of the Amazons

The story is about a Spanish Conquistador, Francisco de Orellana, and his companions who were the first Europeans to navigate the Amazon River. A priest went with them, and the major part of this book is a retelling of his firsthand account of the voyage. It is a story about brave men in a tale of true action and adventure, both as history and as enlightening and entertaining reading.
