"In Red Cloth and Green Forest he gives an account of two remarkable journeys he made in the still inaccessible regions of the Upper Amazon and Orinoco basins.  Vinci has worked as a surveyor and prospector for minerals (in 1950 he discovered the largest diamond mine - Uriman - ever to have been found on the American continent) and he is scientifically trained, especially in geology and botany."
