Amazon.com Book Description:
“Modern classic tells the compelling story of Rima, a strange birdlike girl of the jungle, and Abel, the European who falls in love with her. The book owes much of its popularity to the mystic, near-religious feeling that pervades the story and the beauty of Rima’s halting, poetic expressions. The author’s knowledge and understanding of nature, the jungle and grasslands lend special authenticity to this captivating fantasy.”
If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. Be patient with the writing, it’s worth the concentration. This book would be appealing to anyone with an interest in nature, for it is not only a wonderful love story, but also a vivid description of the Venezuelan rain forest and its indigenous people.
