The Jungle and the Damned


Hassoldt Davis (1907-1959) was an adventurer and travel writer whose work Ernest Hemingway once described as "fantastic ... magnificent". With his intrepid new wife, filmmaker Ruth Staudinger, Davis sets off on an improbable honeymoon, first to Devil's Island, and then down an unexplored river in the interior of French Guiana. The result is a swashbuckling saga that deserves a place on any adventure bookshelf.
