Publisher's Summary

With foreword by Daniel Radcliffe.
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.
Four travellers meet in Bolivia and set off into the Amazon rainforest on an expedition to find a hidden tribe and explore 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 jungle.
The group splits up after disagreements, and Yossi and his friend try to find their own way back without a guide. But when a terrible rafting accident separates them, 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 and he loses all sense of direction, he wonders if he will make it back alive. It's a story of friendship and of the teachings of the forest, and a terrifying true account that you won't be able to put down.

Fantastic book

Brilliant audiobook. I listened to it all within a few days whenever I got the chance. The narrator does a great job and is a pleasure to listen to, the book is really engaging and keeps you hooked until the end. One of the best audiobooks I have listened to and I have listened to a lot.

Just like the real thing

Excellent true story. Having been to the same area and stayed in the jungle I can testify that many of the difficulties Ghinsberg faced are so excellently described. An addictive story that will leave you wanting more.
