“Amazonia is at our mercy... Will we approach its marvels with a sense of power or a sense of wonder?” That is the question Jacques-Yves Cousteau asked after he explored this fabled region with his son Jean-Michel in 1982, unveiling many of its mysteries for the first time. Twenty-five years later, Jean-Michel returns to 
the Amazon with his children, Fabien and Céline, and his Ocean Futures Society (OFS) team, exposing some of the secrets of a lost world that has been enshrouded in enigma for millennia.
OFS offered viewers a peek of its expedition on PBS’s two-part series Return to the Amazon. Now this ebook grants readers an incredible behind-the-scenes pass aboard the Ariaú Açu ship on its epic voyage to the heart of the Brazilian jungle, to reveal all that the cameras could capture—and all that they couldn’t.  

Hundreds of stunning images—including photos from the personal collections of the original Cousteau team—never-before-seen videos and vivid stories take the reader inside tribal territory with the fearless Jaguar People, underneath murky waters with the legendary anaconda, deep into remote forest with gun-toting loggers, and just beyond the clutches of a monster dubbed simply “The Beast.”   

Welcome to your adventure.
