Wallace is a writer and photojournalist who covered the wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua in the 1980s for CBS and the Guardian. Since then he has written extensively for National Geographic. His book, The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon’s Last Uncontacted Tribes, tells the story of this expedition. Wallace’s work about the Amazon has also recently appeared in the New York Times.
