Wildlife photographer Charlie Hamilton James has just bought 100 acres of the Peruvian Amazon... Without even looking at it first. He plans to spend a year photographing the animals on his land, before launching a campaign to protect more of the forest. But it turns out buying a piece of land over the phone isn't such a great idea. Instead of the green heaven he was imagining, he's bought a coca plantation, an illegal logging camp and a few fields of knackered crops. The reality of what he has taken on soon hits home.
