Books to read en route

Jump to last reply

I would like to mention one excellent book to read en route, it came out already and paperback so not bulky.

The Thief at the end of the world by Joe Jackson: about the life of Henry Wickham, which also links to Fordlandia, the confederates, the Jews in the Amazon and rubber history in general.

I would not miss Fordlandia by Greg Grandin or if you like sci-fi The Drowning World by Alan Dean Foster

Cheers

gil
