During the summer of 2007, an Oklahoma school teacher and his two children embarked on his "trip of a lifetime", a trip to explore the Peruvian Amazon. This book recounts the first week of that adventure. For 7 days, the trio lived aboard the 75 year old Riverboat Arca and traveled the Amazon and some of its feeder tributaries. With frequent stops to hike each day and night, they amassed a huge library of photos. These photos supplement Greg's journal entries from the trip.
