Nicholas Coghlan's travels took him off the beaten path into the disparate corners of the country - from the coca fields of Putumayo to the swamps of Darien Gap to the vast savannahs of the Llano where he confronted the stark realities of narcotrafficking, internal displacement, and human rights abuses. His courageous book reveals the workings of two guerrilla armies, bands of right-wing paramilitaries, and the squandered potential of Andres Pastrana's presidential campaign and victory over the unlamented incumbent Ernesto Samper. Pictured from the outside as a menacing narcodemocracy, the intricate truth Coghlan uncovers is at once more horrifying and more tragic. Colombia, marked by daily violence and breathtaking beauty, is the saddest country.
