Green MansionsBook - 2007
A failed revolutionary attempt drives European Abel to seek refuge in the virgin forests of southwestern Venezuela. There, in the "green mansion" of the title, Abel encounters the wood-nymph Rima, the last survivor of a mysterious aboriginal race. The bird-girl's ethereal presence cativates him completely, but the love that flowers between them is soon blighted by cruelty and sorrow.
