The Boiling River (English)

Ruzo relays the thrill of scientific discovery, the challenge of ecological conservation and the exuberant knowledge that natu-ral wonders still holds many secrets. Ruzo's underlying message is one that will resonate deeply with readers around the world. He makes the compelling case that there are still extraor-dinary natural wonders to be discovered, but the chance of finding them is in jeopardy if we don't actively protect the environment.
