What region of the world is named for female warriors in Greek mythology? Is as large as the 48 contiguous states? Contains the biggest rainforest on Earth? Is home to over 2.5 million animal species? And includes a river that spills more water into the Atlantic Ocean than any other waterway in the world?
The answer: The Amazon, a vast area that includes parts of Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana; a mighty river basin fed by over a thousand tributaries that reach across the continent like so many veins.
