Deep in the virgin forests of south-western Venezuela, European Abel seeks refuge from war. Instead of peace and solitude in the 'green mansion', he encounters the wood nymph Rima, the last survivor of a mysterious aboriginal race. Abel is quickly captivated by her ethereal presence, and a love somewhere between reality and imagination blossoms between them. However, cruelty and sorrow lie in wait on the horizon, and the couple's romance is not fated to last forever. Prophetic and haunting, Green Mansions is an exploration of the loss of the wilderness, beauty and the bitter reality of the clashing of two worlds, available again in a handsome edition that will enchant contemporary readers as its first publication did in 1904, and has done ever since.
