Goodreads asked William Nikkel:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

William Nikkel I got the idea from a magazine article about damage done to the forest by gold mining in South America. In addition to logging, a modern-day gold rush that has spurred hundreds of legal and illegal mining operations is decimating the fragile ecosystem at an alarming rate, along with pollution of its waterways.
