"'Simply breathtaking. Yossi's story of survival haunted me for weeks' Bryce Courtenay, author of The Power of One 'A thrilling book... One man's amazing adventure' The Washington Post 'One of those amazing survival stories that almost brings you [to] a cold sweat just from reading it. Once you start you won't put it down' The Mercury"
This is a harrowing true story of adventure and survival.Four backpackers meet in Bolivia and set off into the rainforest on a dream expedition, lured by the promise of uncharted villages and forgotten tribes hidden in places tourists only dream of seeing. But what begins as the adventure of a lifetime quickly becomes a struggle for survival when they get lost in the wilds of the Amazonian jungle.The group splits up after disagreements, and Yossi and Kevin try to find their own way without a guide. When a terrible rafting accident separates the two men, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone in one of the most unpredictable environments on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his skin begins to rot from his feet during raging storms, he wonders if any of them will make it back alive.Told with gripping immediacy, it's an extraordinary, terrifying tale that you won't be able to put down.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

For those who enjoy this kind of book I highly recommend Robert Whitaker's "The Mapmaker's Wife" which is more complex and much better written.

I was looking forward to reading about people getting lost in a jungle in South America, but in the first few chapters the author told about how they slaughtered piglets in front of their mother, then the mother in front of her babies, then how they slaughtered a calf in front of it's mother, then how they ate monkey meat!
The author and his friends sound very apathetic and self serving, with absolutely no compassion towards anyone or anything other than themselves.
If that kind of person interests you, then read the book.
Otherwise, don't waste your time or money!
