The Henry Ford

In 1928, Henry Ford established Fordlandia in the Brazilian rainforest to supply rubber for automobile production. After a year of mismanagement by Ford officials, Ford asked a trusted supervisor, Victor Perini, to turn things around. Perini went to the Amazon, but found the heat exhausting. He returned to Michigan with his family in May 1930 -- only a few months after arrival.
