This text, derived from the manuscript in the National Library of Ireland, describes Roger Casement's journey into the South American rainforests to investigate atrocities against tribal people of the north-west Amazon. It follows Casement's transition from observer to anti-imperial revolutionary and Irish patriot, leading to his execution by the British in August 1916 after the failure of the Easter Rising.
