Michael Clark Rockefeller was a member of one of the world's most powerful and influential families, yet rather than a career in politics or finance like his father and grandfathers, what Michael dreamt of was an adventure, an exploration of the last remaining places on earth untouched by man.

Confirmed as being man-made, investigations revealed these ditches were dug a long time ago, way before the Amazon rainforest even existed.
