Where the Road Ends: A Home in the Brazilian Rainforest by Binka Le Breton

The colorful story of one couple's journey across the world to build their dream home in the heart of the Amazon



In 1989, as their mid-life crises approached, concert pianist Binka Le Breton and her husband Robin, an agricultural economist, decided to uproot themselves from their home in Washington, D.C. and start a new life in Brazil.


Where the Road Ends is their story of building a house, a rainforest research center, and a new dream. Since then, they've learned how to work with the trees, the animals, the weather, the local community, and each other. Their technology now ranges from the oxcart to the Internet, and in 2000 they opened a rainforest conservation and research center that is visited by foreign researchers and Brazilian school children.


From meeting their resident cowboy, Albertinho, to beheading snakes, to chauffeuring a local wedding--the adventures described here are unparalleled. This delightful memoir takes the armchair traveler deep into another world where matters of providing food and shelter can never be taken for granted. Binka and Robin have embarked on an adventure that many readers only dream about--transplanting themselves in a different country and learning (often the hard way) what it takes to survive and flourish.
