Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Rosolie delivers an old-fashioned jungle adventure, one with rare immediacy and depth of feeling for the people and creatures he encounters" (Wall Street Journal)

"Paul Rosolie's solo adventures in the heart of the Amazon jungle, up close and personal with giant anacondas and jaguars, are gripping. And his dedication to preserving one of the earth's last wildernesses is where he really sets himself apart. Mother of God is an awe-inspiring read." (Bear Grylls)

"An extraordinary book ... gripping, sometimes disturbing and always satisfying. There are parts that will haunt you, scenes you will never forget." (Jane Goodall)

"A gripping adventure story filled with plenty of adrenaline-filled encounters. A vividly written narrative of an amazingly diverse world still to be explored." (Kirkus Reviews)

"This is old-school nature writing, unabashedly romantic and free of alienation. Rosolie's powers of description are so vivid and engrossing that readers will be swept along in his passion." (Publishers Weekly)

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Lost World 26. Mai 2017
Von William J. Higgins,III - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an exceptionally well written adventure and eye-opening narrative of author Paul Rosalie’s experiences in some of the most remote areas of the Peruvian Amazon.

Paul’s mission began with a passion for nature and exploration which ultimately focused his efforts on conservation and protection for this lost living Eden. His activities in this tropical rain forest are unsurpassable...extremely a page turner with jaguars, giant anacondas, anteaters and river otters, colossal-size caimans, dodgy poachers, loggers and miners, the floating forest, so much.

This is an area now threatened with the Trans-Amazon Highway which in due course will have undesirable consequences on the unique and unusual life in this corner of the world. As the celebrated naturalist Humboldt once said, “Everything is interrelated”...in other words, take one piece out of the puzzle and nothing is the same again...results can be devastating.

Not only high-adventure in the jungle, but also a personal story of one’s inner self to safeguard what really matters to themselves, others, life and the planet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sometimes an unconventional lifestyle is the best one! 27. August 2015
Von Eric - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A definite read that will be leaving you on the edge of your seat, 'Mother of God' is about one young guy's urge to escape the concrete jungle of where he grew up and immerse himself in an unconventional life being a naturalist in the Amazon, where he found fulfillment and happiness. From his adventures traveling solo in the Amazon and encountering peccaries, anacondas and caimans, to finding love in India, Rosolie keeps you interested from one chapter to the next. This book also serves as an important tool to educate on the destruction of Earth's last great wilderness, and just how important conservation is, not only for the Amazon, but all the remaining natural areas of our planet. As Rosolie points out, this generation could be the last to see the Amazon in it's current state before mankind devours it in the need of progress, which I hope humanity will never get that far. Give this book a read and expand your mind!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous account of an Amazonian rainforest and its destruction 25. Januar 2015
Von Anne G. Sherrod - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As a person who loves nature, and an environmentalist who has a deep feeling for biodiversity, I LOVED this book. Couldn't put it down. Sat in a chair from morning til night, getting up only for bare essentials, until I'd finished it. Gave it to my friends and they raved about it. Just the title, Mother of God, had intrigued me because, whatever people meant when they named this tributary of the Amazon Madre de Dios, the name infers to me how a rainforest river is the birthplace of an explosion of life. I liked the author a lot. His explorations are courageous, his story is amazing, he is an excellent writer. His desire to be a scientist, but live and write as a lover of what he studies is on the right course. This book is how I want to be taken to the Amazon or any other wild place as a reader. It made me want to go there, despite snakes, crocodiles and mosquitoes. His recent exploit, after the book was published, of trying to get eaten by an Anaconda for a film (which can be seen on YouTube)is not on a right course. Perhaps the great success of his book has gone to his head. I was appalled, but scientists and environmentalists alike often have to figure out whether they are going to promote the environment or promote themselves; save nature or exploit it for fame; live one's life or make an exhibition of it. Rosolie is young, he has all the makings of a great modern explorer, he has time to make mistakes and learn from them. I hope he survives whatever attack of terrible judgement caused him to undertake getting swallowed by an anaconda, that he continues his documentation of the wild Amazonian rainforest, lives humbly and writes more books like this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't put it down! 28. Dezember 2016
Von Border Corsair - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Beautifully written and understated. It restores an old man's faith in youth and cuts through the clutter of modern life to what's really vital and important. If I had a fortune, I'd leave it to this kid just to see what he could do with some wherewithal to go with his huevos and brains.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Wondrous Adventure and Personal Story 23. Juni 2014
Von B. Gooden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was fascinated by this book, which I read on my Kindle. I was searching for books on Peru, principally those related to pre-Columbian cultures, and found and was hooked by the title, since my wife and I have traveled to Peru three times (and also Ecuador two times), including a couple times in the Amazon region. And the initial reviews enticed me to read this book. The author's descriptions of the Amazon rainforests were at once realistic and poetic, with a very real important emphasis on what this world is doing, and not doing, to destroy, or to allow by apathy the destruction of the essential wholeness of the rainforests, to the world's and not just Peru's great peril. There is no doubt of his devotion to the Amazon and wish to preserve it, including what he is doing now, both by writing the book, and also continuing to help run, with others, including citizens of Peru, the Las Piedras Biodiversity Station, helping to lead its efforts to both study and preserve the region. I especially loved the descriptions of the animals, reptiles and birds of the still-for-now pristine regions of the Madre de Díos that most of us will never see, or unfortunately, ever see again. I also liked the fact that the author was self-deprecating about his adventures, including recognizing where he was perhaps brash and not paying attention to the possible dangers of the situations he was putting himself in. And then there is the interesting back-story of the author's personal and educational development from his days in New York, to his early attempts to establish himself in the Amazon region, but, with his parents help and encouragement, to go to college and complete his education to make himself more valuable in the responsibility he would then assume in Peru. This is absolutely a marvelous book. I would very much like to read whatever his next book might be. And I will no doubt re-read this one soon.
