Wade Davis

Author and renowned National Geographic explorer Wade Davis has enthralled people around the world by capturing the essence of places; awakening in his readers a longing for worlds thousands of miles away. Magdalena is a tribute and love letter to Colombia, the first country that gave him license to be free. A corridor of commerce, fountain of culture, and wellspring for Colombian music, literature, poetry and prayer, the Magdalena has also served as the graveyard of the nation. And yet, always, it returns as a river of life.
