Deep in the lush and dangerous rain forests of Peru, Alexandra Pace and her team search determinedly for a cure for deadly diseases. One strain of the disease has already begun the process of ravaging Alexandra's own mind and body. Finding a cure is the only hope for her and for her daughter, who has almost certainly inherited the same disease.
Alex believes she is searching for a needle in a haystack until she meets Michael Kenway, a British doctor who lost his wife when "mad cow disease" ravaged Britain in the 1990's. He presents her with an incredible story--a patient suffering from the disease was cured by a mythical "healing tribe" living deep in the Amazon jungle. Reluctantly placing her faith in Michael, who is entirely too religious for her comfort, Alexandra and her team seek out an unreached indigenous group who may hold the cure not only for Alex, but also for the world.
Award-winning, best-selling author Angela Hunt combines the unique rainforest setting, modern science, and a thrilling race for a cure into a powerful message of faith and redemption.

Katie5 Stars Out Of 5August 6, 2004KatieAn absolute fabulous book. Full of scientific and religious possibilities (not often do those two works work together) Hunt weaves a gripping story of the Amazon. It had so many twists and turns, with action that kept me at the edge of my seat. A must-have for anyone wanting a thrilling book.
JANET CHESTER BLY5 Stars Out Of 5September 2, 2003JANET CHESTER BLYI enjoyed this scientists search for healing secrets in the jungle story very much--creative concept and packs a spiritual punch. It reminded me in setting and overtones of Sean Connory's movie, The Medicine Man, which I also enjoyed, but with the added dimension of the Christian worldview.
