I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'large river' is the definition.
'Amazon' can be an answer for 'river' (Amazon River is an example). I am unsure of the 'large' bit.

'an endless labyrinth over' is the wordplay.
'an' becomes 'a'.
'endless' means to remove the last letter.
'labyrinth' becomes 'maze' (synonyms).
'over' becomes 'on' (physically on top of).
'maze' with its final letter taken away is 'maz'.

Can you help me to learn more?
