Reviews

"An acclaimed travel writer's eerily hypnotic journey deep into the heart of Colombia's most mysterious river... A well-rendered travelogue and a profound excursion into what it means to remember and forget." --Kirkus

"The erudite and graceful travel writer Jacobs takes us down Colombia's longest river, the Magdalena, and it is a thrilling and fearsome ride...Jacobs delivers not only an adventure story and a travel narrative, but also an excursion into memory itself...a text that stands with Paul Theroux, Bruce Chatwin, and, even, in some ways, Mark Twain's Life on the Mississippi."--Mark Levine Booklist
