When the world map was full of gaps, the Amazon topped the list of places unknown to western explorers. In 2016 are there any ‘unknowns’ left? On a trip to the Amazon, the writer ponders this and other questions as she struggles to deal with her father’s journey through Parkinson’s disease towards what is perhaps our last great unknown—death.  Sometimes sad, sometimes confronting, Good With Maps is also funny and thoughtful and celebrates the power of reading and literature to transport us to places both real and imagined.
