Summary:
In the jungles of the Amazon, a lone botanist races against the destruction of the great rainforest to discover medicinal plants before they are lost forever. 20th CENTURY MEDICINE MAN travels to some of the most remote locations on earth with Dr. Mark Plotkin, who lives among Brazil's Tiro Indians, studying their use of the jungle's healing plants. Go with Dr. Plotkin and a Tiro healer deep into the jungle to see where these plants live, and discover how some of Plotkin's most promising finds are tested by the National Cancer Institute as possible cures for cancer or AIDS. But if there is a magical cure in the Amazon jungle, will it be discovered in time, or will it fall prey to the logging that is toppling millions of acres of forest every year? As a special bonus, 20th CENTURY MEDICINE MAN examines a battle against extinction that seems to be a success. In FLIGHT FOR SURVIVAL, climb to the top of an 80-foot tree to check on two bald eagle chicks, the latest reward in a decades-long fight to bring America's national symbol back from the brink. And meet Dr. James Grier, who details the remarkable turnaround of this majestic bird.
