“In Beyond the High Savannahs James Wickenden tells the true story of a young South American who, abandoning town life, set out alone without costly equipment to seek diamonds in the far mountain ranges where the borders of Brazil, Venezuela and British Guiana meet.  The book is entirely based on the fascinating experiences of this young prospector and amateur explorer, who felt drawn towards the jungles that had killed so many of his father’s generation in the gold-rush.”
