Musician, songwriter, artist, and adventurer, Norman Walters has filled his life with fascinating stories. He shares these tales in his book Dream of a Lifetime: Ten Years in the Upper Amazon, as he recounts the highs and lows of starting a business in the Peruvian rain forest.
Norman Walters and his longtime business partner Larry have sought out and experienced what most souls are terrified of or can only dream of: The Precipice of Life. From playing music in Greenwich Village in the 1960s to building a touristic paradise in Peru’s deepest, darkest, Amazon rainforest in the 1990s, they have consistently gone against the odds, winning…losing…and calling it even.

“Interspersed with tales of his gloriously misspent youth, one of the hardest-working hippies of his generation recounts the genesis of his remarkable achievement–the creation of an eco-sensitive tourist lodge in Peru’s Amazon jungle.”
