Why is the Brazilian rainforest vanishing so fast? And why is it essential not only to the people and the animals within it, but to the whole world?
This story, seen through the eyes of a child called Remaema, describes how the Yanomami tribe are still battling against potential developers. Can a solution be found that will protect the forest and allow the tribe to continue living as they always have done, while benefiting from the right form of development?
Richard Platt's dramatic approach and Ruper van Wyk's masterly illustrations, accompanied by an information spread, offer and exciting perspective on a controversial subject.
"A wonderful story - and a call for action to help save the world."
