From Gerry Hadden:

Thousands of small-time miners are digging up the Peruvian Amazon. The police and army are after them. Environmentalists the world around condemn them. It’s a disaster and its only getting worse. But the miners themselves say they have no other way to make a living. An unprecedented journey into the illegal mines, where crooks and killers toil alongside otherwise honest men in search of gold — and a way out of life-threatening poverty.
