Chris spoke about The Third Bank of the River with veteran journalist Simon Worrall of National Geographic's Book Talk. "More than half of Earth’s rain forests have been lost to the demand for wood and arable land," writes Worrall. "Nowhere is this environmental crisis starker than in the Amazon, where cattle ranching, clear-cutting, mining, and homesteading are eating away at what remains. Chris Feliciano Arnold’s new book The Third Bank of The River doesn’t address these well-known issues directly. Instead, he takes the reader on a journey behind the scenes to reveal the underlying social and political problems—from corruption, to drug-dealing, to illegal logging—and the links between them."
