Palace of the Peacock by Wilson Harris

The novel follows a crew of men on a dangerous journey up the Amazon River to find a lost tribe. Led by a domineering, half-indigenous foreman, the crew grapples with the harsh realities of the jungle, their own pasts, and the blurred lines between dreams and reality. As they venture deeper into the wilderness, they are forced to confront their own mortality, the violent legacy of colonialism, and the spectral presence of a beautiful, mysterious woman who seems to embody the spirit of the Amazon itself.
