The Amazon is famous for its biodiversity, as a home to innumerable types of animals and plants. Less frequently extolled is the extraordinary human ecosystem that’s grown around the river and its surrounding jungle. Indigenous tribes, missionaries, loggers, miners, soldiers, drug traffickers—there’s a long list of groups who lay claim to the area and its bounty. In Stranger’s Guide: Amazon, you’ll explore the river and its many communities as well as the forces that threaten this special place, from fascism to climate change.
