The Vanishing Rainforest

Richard Platt Rupert van Wyk

About the book

Why is the Brazilian rainforest vanishing so fast? And why is it essential not only to the people and animals within it, but to the whole world? This story, seen through the eyes of a child called Remaema, describes how the Yanomami tribe are battling against potential developers. Can a solution be found that will protect the forest and allow the tribe to continue living as they always have done, while benefiting from limited development? Richard Platt's dramatic approach and Rupert van Wyk's masterly illustrations, accompanied by an information spread, offer an exciting perspective on a controversial and topical subject.
