“A powerful story of self-discovery, survival in the wild.” —Los Angeles Times
Four travelers meet in Bolivia and set off into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but what begins as a dream adventure quickly deteriorates into a dangerous nightmare, and after weeks of wandering in the dense undergrowth, the four backpackers split up into two groups. But when a terrible rafting accident separates him from his partner, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone against one of the wildest backdrops on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map, or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his feet begin to rot during raging storms, as he loses all sense of direction, and as he begins to lose all hope, he wonders whether he will make it out of the jungle alive.
The basis of an upcoming motion picture, Jungle is the story of friendship and the teachings of nature, and a terrifying true account that you won’t be able to put down.
Loved this book!
I love true stories of adventure and survival.
I enjoyed this book very much!
This is a dramatic, engaging, first-person true story of adventure, complex human relationships, and survival in the Amazon jungle. After a chance meeting and the forming of friendships, four young men set out together to explore the jungle and find themselves faced with life and death environmental challenges as well as shifting interpersonal relationships. Midway in the story, as action escalates, it becomes increasingly difficult to put the book down. I highly recommend it to fans of the genre.
