“Water thundered. His eyes stayed closed and his fingers grew numb. His feet ached. Did his hands have the strength to grip again if he let go? He had to try, but fear held him. He heard another sound beneath the roar of the falls, and then his father’s voice. “Do not look up and do not look down. The secret of defeating fear lies in keeping your mind in one spot, not in what has happened and not in what could happen. Only here. Only now. Nothing else matters.”

Shamanism, the beginning of the demise of the rainforest, religious bigotry, coming of age, and a touching love story drive this impeccably researched adventure.Pallamary brings us to a mystical ancient jungle and into the heart of an indigenous culture in which the people are true to their dance and their dreams.
