We are happy to be translating Volume 3 from Travels in Brazil, the Martius-Spix expedition 1817-20 . Our Eco education program, Remember the Rainforest 1, is based on the work of the rainforest explorers of the 1800s, the Age of Collectors. Volume 3, the part about the Amazon was lost in a fire in London in 1824. Soon all of the italicized words will have links to their images, just as they do in Volumes 1 and 2. http://remembertherainforest.com/shop2/rtr1/tvolumes/tv2p159p.html
