In his latest book, Magdalena: River of Dreams, Davis tells of his travels on this magnificent river, the source of Colombian music, literature, poetry, and prayer and, in doing so, tells the epic story of a people who have overcome years of conflict precisely because of their enduring spirit. Tim Hannigan speaks to Wade Davis about his deep love of a land that is home to the greatest ecological and geographical diversity on the planet.
