Praise

“Thrilling . . . Barcott mashes up adventure, nature writing and biography in a steamy climate of corruption and intrigue.”
–The New York Times Book Review

“An absorbing narrative about an unheralded and faraway environmental battle that speaks volumes about the ways of our world–and how an individual might actually change it. This is a great read and an important story.”
–Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food

“This fascinating account . . . touches upon greed, corruption, and the legacy of colonialism. . . . Not even Hollywood could invent Sharon Matola [the] plucky American.”
–Entertainment Weekly

“This real page-turner of narrative nonfiction is hard to put down.”
–Booklist

“Partly Hiaasen-esque, but real life.”
–New York Post

“With a plot so multilayered and dramatic that readers will need to remind themselves it’s a true account, the narrative achieves the depth of a case study and the accessible intimacy of a short feature.”
–The Miami Herald
