Minimum Donation €105.00

The story of a disenchanted musician who leaves America for the remote forests of the Orinoco in a search for primitive musical instruments. Fleeing an empty existence in New York City, he takes a journey with his mistress to one of the few remaining areas of the world not yet touched by civilization-the upper reaches of a great South American river. The Lost Steps describes his search, his adventures, and the remarkable decision he makes in a village that appears to be truly outside history
