THE AMAZON RIVER BASIN IS HOME TO THE GREATEST BIODIVERSITY ON PLANET EARTH. WILL IT YIELD UP ITS POTENTIAL CURES? OR SINK YOU IN ITS DEPTHS? Strange tropical diseases can wipe out whole communities in days. And in this age of modern travel, they can morph into worldwide epidemics in mere weeks. You are a young doctor specializing in such threats. Now you face a journey into the heart of the Amazon jungle where your medical team has mysteriously disappeared in the search for a cure. For hours you travel with the light of stars. Owaduga, could it be the Amazons who captured my friends? The canoe twists in the current. Be quiet! You look into the darkness. Nothing! The dugout bumps against a submerged log. There on the bank is a tall, strong looking figure. It is a woman. There are others behind her. Owaduga speaks. If you wish, why not ask her? If you ask these women for help, turn to page 11. If you ask Owaduga to speak for you, turn to page 33. YOU choose what happens next!

About the author (2005)

Raymond A. Montgomery is the founder of the Choose Your Own Adventure interactive children's book series. Montgomery synthesized all of his varied educational and game theory work in the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) series, first published by Bantam Books in 1979. The series grew into a publishing phenomenon with over 180 titles and 250 million copies published worldwide in over 35 languages. The books were unique in that they appealed equally to girls and boys, to reluctant readers and avid ones. The CYOA series has been used in classrooms from early elementary school to college. At the advent of the Internet age, the series was used frequently in curricula focused on explaining the interactivity of the World Wide Web to young children. After a successful stint in the mid-to-late-90's designing games for CD-ROM, Montgomery decided to re-launch the CYOA series based on the interest he was getting from former fans. Montgomery and partners Shannon Gilligan and Gordon Troy, Esq. have turned their full attentions to Choose Your Own Adventure since Fall 2004. The series is being reissued through Chooseco LLC, in Waitsfield, Vermont. R.A. MONTGOMERY is an avid outdoorsman. He has hiked in the Himalayas, climbed mountains in Europe, scuba-dived in Central America, and sailed in Franco-phone Africa .He has lived in France, travels frequently to Asia, and calls Vermont home. His interests include macroeconomics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels, and music. He has two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters.
