This is the account of an expedition searching the original source of the Amazon… in the African Sahara!
Indeed, the Amazon didn't always fly eastward from the Andes to empty into the Atlantic. South America was once part of Gondwana, an ancient "supercontinent" that is believed to have contained what is now Africa, Australia, India, Iran and Antarctica.
About 140 million years ago, Gondwana broke apart and South America sailed westward as an island continent. In the process, the Amazon definitely lost its African origin.
ANCIENT AMAZON is a natural history investigation seeking proof of a groundbreaking theory.
