Have you ever wondered how to travel with your favorite pet in a huge tropical country where footloose foreigners are suspect?
Budding author Ben Batchelder abandons a cozy corporate life and, instead of returning to the U.S., moves deep into the interior of Brazil.
Here he drives his two-wheel drive station wagon into the Amazon, on the notoriously dangerous Belém-Brasília highway, and back along Brazil’s endless Atlantic Coast, on roads few if any Brazilians brave. Hence the need for such a ferocious breed as Labrador: for protection.
Along the way, humorous encounters with countless locals help him to plumb Brazilian culture and history, in so many aspects the flip-side of the American experience, and reveal why he fell in love with Brazil’s beguiling warmth in the first place – along with black Labs.
