Sangama: A Story of the Amazon Jungle tells the story of a young man, Abel Barcas, entering the Peruvian Amazon in the early twentieth century to make his fortune in the then booming trade in natural rubber. He meets an older man, Sangama, and his daughter Chuya, who live in the Amazon. Sangama is wise in the ways of the jungle and becomes a teacher and guide to Barcas. Sangama is a descendant of the Inca rulers and is also on his own mission in search of lost Inca treasure. Together they go through many adventures and the reader learns much about the untouched jungle as it existed for eons before the entry of outsiders, as well as the culture of the early settlers as we follow them through many adventures. Sangama is the translation into English of a novel written by the Peruvian author Arturo D. Hernández, himself a native of the Amazon area. It was first published in Spanish in Peru in 1942 and later published in French in Paris in 1952 and in German in Zurich in 1955. It was a best seller in Europe. It has never been published in English before this translation in more
