I really liked the old fashioned mystery premise of this book, and the environmental theme. An orphan boy inherits a Cornwall estate from a mysterious, reclusive uncle and discovers a mystery concerning his uncle's previous explorations in the Amazon; sounds like a great story. But while I like great nature description, this book just went overboard. The mystery's solution was clearly evident to even my ten year old by about halfway through the book and the description just seemed to drag it out.
