Summary
The name itself has a sense of mystery and foreboding. With its vast jungles and huge river, the Amazon region covers 2.7 million square miles and stretches across eight South American countries. It has attracted some of history's bravest adventurers, lured by tales of untold riches and the challenge of conquering some of the most difficult terrain on Earth. This feature length special examines the exploits and adventures of modern descendants of the legendary 15th century explorers. Some are drawn by the promise of scientific revelations; others heed the siren call of hidden riches. Regardless of their motives, the Amazon remains a fickle and brutal mistress, dealing death and failure with a generous hand. Plunge into the uncharted wilderness with Teddy Roosevelt after the Roughrider lost the presidency; see how Henry Ford lost millions in an ill-fated project to produce rubber; and follow in the footsteps of a British explorer determined to track down a legendary lost city. Filled with location footage and first person accounts of these harrowing adventures, this is a gripping look at one of the few truly wild areas left on earth
