An account of what starts as a group adventure in the Amazon rainforest. At the beginning of the trip, the journalistic style is playful and demonstrates the group's naivety at times.
This rapidly changes as the trip progresses. After a few disagreements, the group splits and Yossi and his friend attempt to find their own way back. After a rafting accident separates them, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone without training, a knife or even a map.
"I heard the rustle again, too close and too real to ignore. I clutched the flashlight, stuck my head out of the mosquito net... and found myself face-to-face with a jaguar."
Some gripping and graphic imagery make this a tale that you won’t be able to put down.
