A unique collection of short humorous non-fiction stories originally written for the English Language Press in South America. Each story highlights the differences between the attitudes of the Amazon Jungle and Rainforest cultures, comparing them with the Californian Lifestyle. Some of the articles have sharp political undertones, and many question our own values and belief system. The author lived in Huntington Beach, California, for over thirty years. As the reader immerses his or herself into the storylines, an effort has been made to portray not solely the ugliness, but also the beauty of a wonderful loving caring culture threatened by questionable western values. Some of the stories are very emotional. Readers will laugh and cry as they enter the world of the rainforest and share their way of life. Anyone planning or dreaming about visiting the rainforest communities will find these articles of great value.
