Roland Stevenson publisheed books and have created many wonderful paintings, always showing the beauty of the Amazon Rainforest and its natives.
He spent many years of his life studying the mysteries of the Eldorado (finding the location of the extinct lake Parime as shown at the book "A Light on Amazonian Misteries") and the origin of the primitive men of the Americas, presenting a new theory linking all natives in South and North America to the primitive Asian indigenous (at the book "Rethinking Our Pre History"). Also a descendant of Johannes Vermeer, whose his last name "Vermehren" came from.
