Hello and Welcome!


As the director of Raintree Nutrition, Inc., I am fortunate enough to be able to travel the Amazon Rainforest extensively and see a part of the Amazon that the tourist never sees. Come join me now and see the pictures from a trip to the Brazilian Amazon in January 1999 and meet the Indians, animals, places and people I visted.

About the Trip

I spent the month of January 1999 in Brazil, predominately to look for and open up new harvesting areas where we could obtain the medicinal plants that Raintree markets. This particular trip took me first to a region in the Northwestern Amazon near Altamira, (in the State of Para) Brazil where I met with and visited 5 new Indigenous Indian Tribes. While land is certainly an issue when harvesting plants, the harvestors themselves are just as important. Despite the language barriers, I met with these Indian tribes to talk about them harvesting the plants for Raintree. The pictures from these Indian villages are here now as well as part of the Rio Negro journey and some of the narratives are completed. Please check back later to see if I have uploaded the new sections on the last leg of my journey at the Chico Mendez Extractive Reserve in Rio Branco in the Southern Amazon.

If you are interested to learn more about me and my personal work in the Amazon, there is a Corporate Profileon the Raintree website and I have other jungle trip pictures at My Personal Home Page


Have a fun journey and come back soon!

Yours in health,
