In 1892, William D. Pease and his wife, Sarah, set off from their home in Northampton, Massachusetts, on a journey to the Amazon rainforest. It was an arduous journey, made all the more difficult by the fact that the Peases were not equipped for the journey. They relied on the kindness of strangers, and their courageousness and resilience made the trip possible.

The Monkey's Fist is the result of their expedition. It tells the story of the Peases' journey, their encounters with the native people of the Amazon, and their struggles to survive in a wild and hostile environment. It is a story of endurance, courage, and determination, and it is a testament to the power of human imagination and spirit.; 8vo; FSA.
