My father had a 10th Mountain Division (US Army) tent that always struck me as a close approximation of the Amazons'.
10th Mountain Division tent
The tent had a floor and an entry tunnel as well as a reinforced panel to allow putting a Primus or other small stove (or a lantern) on it, and was reversible between OD and white, but would pretty much meet the description. If you wish you can visualize it scaled up to accommodate six seated explorers/pirates plus parrot.

We used it for several decades; the only time we had any issues was in 1969 (a good 25 years after manufacture date) on Mt. Washington (NH, USA) in the snow when our sleeping pads weren't thick enough and the snow melt seeped through the floor. I'm pretty sure that new it wouldn't have been an issue.
