An exciting journey deep into the tropical rainforest of Brazil, this book introduces young readers to the Yanomami, a tribe of Aboriginal People who have lived in the rainforest for hundreds of years. Kids learn about the unique environments of the rainforest with its colorful flora and fauna; the modern threats to the rainforest from ranching, mining, and agricultural operations; and how they can become involved in conservation plans to save the rainforest. The tropical rainforests in West Africa and Southeast Asia are also discussed.
