 My personal recollections between the lines of De Graff's Headhunters of the Amazon include the same items 150 years after De Graff describes them well: Bird eating tarantulas, 400-pound fish, a green pharmacy, instant thunderstorms, rivers rise 20 vertical feet in 24 hours, people perched like frogs on water for a month, alligators as long as Cadillacs, cane blowguns, headhunters, vampire bats, killer hornets, tusked hogs, 30' snakes, ayahuasca, heart palms, paranormal exhibitions, handhewn canoes, telephone trees, strangling figs, ravishing women, 10' pumas, colorful parrots, triple-deck steamers, sapo frogs, army ants, malaria, butterfly clouds, howler monkeys, electric eels, flesh eating piranha, algae covered sloths, pink dolphins, unmapped regions, and happy faces.
