Excerpt from In the Guiana Forest: Studies of Nature in Relation to the Struggle for Life
The glamour of the wilds produced In the Guiana Forest. It was the result of many a peep into the jungle. Disappointing, no doubt, as a book Of travel and adventure, it represented to the many a hum-drum state of things. Some said it was all fancy, Others represented it as the work of a dreamer. The few, however, knew it to be a true picture, and one friend said it kept him sitting up longer than any book he ever perused.
It was intended as an attempt to picture wild nature in all its loveliness the journeys to the forest were the dullest part of the undertaking. As for the return in a bateau.
