Long Sighted: What's the novel where a character has their eye stretched to the back of their head, thus enabling a kind of second sight?

Help me find this book! It's about a family, possibly from the North of the UK / Scotland, but the thing I remember most is one of the brothers travelling through South America. He washes up on a riverbank, plants almost grow up around him. Local indigenous people save him and he becomes a medicine man.

The image that really sticks in my mind is that his eye is slowly pulled out and the optic nerve extended so that he has an "eye in the back of his head".

Does this book actually exist?
