Description Just days after the news of the assassination of John F. Kennedy has left the world reeling, a twenty-six-year-old Dutchman finds himself lost in a stretch of Brazilian rainforest he's been hired to clear. Decades later, the forest comes back to haunt him and forces him to take a hard look at his life. Having lived in Brazil for over half a century, Hans Leusen (Venlo, 1937) shares his story – a story of bomb shards and broken statues, of emigration and adventure, of diplomacy and charity, of tobacco and ayahuasca, of a land and people he has loved.
