Beloved children’s book author Helen Borton traveled to the jungle of Guatemala in 1967, where few others went, let alone a woman. Considered Helen Borton’s masterpiece, she created images and stories inspired by the trip to share with children back in the US.
She takes children through a single day’s trip deep inside the jungle – mist, ferns, cockatoos, armadillos and a jaguar in etchings.
A sophisticated book to experience the wonderous and then unspoilt rain forest.
First published in 1968.
7.5 x 10.2 inches
