black end-papers; The choice of this particular spot to become the largest national park in Brazil, was based on the fact that the land sheltered an uninterrupted tropical rainforest and a watershed of dark-coloured rivers, of which Jau was the most important, winding its way across 400 km from the source. It also had the distinct advantage of being flanked by a series of rivers and creeks, which gave it natural protection from human interference and any natural disasters, which could alter its physical and ecological characteristics. Its administrative directives, which were drawn up jointly with the Vitoria Amazonica Foundation, emphasize the park's objectives and activities such as scientific research and ecotourism. The superb colour photography by Jose de Paula Machado gives the reader a resume of this hinterland & the secrets which still abound in its almost virgin territory.
