This is the English edition of El Encuentro (Pearson Ed., Madrid 2011.) The Encounter weaves a story of adventure, romance, immigration and the social realities of Latin America, beginning with the infamous dumping of toxic waste into the pristine Amazonian jungles of Ecuador by the Texaco oil company. While describing the origins of this crime, The Encounter is also the story of two teenagers in search for cultural and individual identity.
