Eden-Brazil

Eden-Brazil is an ecotourism destination and nature reserve in a stunning swath of beach-lined, coastal rainforest. Inspired by the paradisiacal setting and the idea of providing visitors with the ultimate return to nature, they decide to stage the biblical story of the Garden of Eden, complete with Adam, Eve, the snake, the apple, the works. However, re-creating an earthly paradise as something beyond a roadside attraction is no easy feat. In this charming, tragicomic tale of compromised environmentalism, Moacyr Scliar employs his signature humor and talent for crisp storytelling while weaving together a playfully serious parable of environmentalist ideals that clash with the realities of local politics, global consumer culture, and competing visions of authentic nature., reviewing a previous edition or volume
