Huck Finning The Amazon
Art Post and 2 other explorers were some of the first men to make a continental crossing of South America from the high Andean Mountains to the mouth of the Amazon River at Belem du Para on the Atlantic Ocean.
Arthur Post and his two fellow explorers, Edward Kellog Strong III, and Gain Allen John (both now deceased) traveled in canoes with the Machienga Indians of Peru in 1934. That is 75 years ago! Currently, the Travel Channel is featuring the Machienga Indians in the series " Mark and Olly: Living With the Machienga".
Huck Finning the Amazon by Arthur Post is their extraordinarily epic story: beyond any doubt, the greatest adventure achievement of the twentieth century.
