Description
From avoiding predators to navigating through the jungle without a compass, this guide describes the tools and skills one would need if lost in the Amazon, and presents activities like making a fishing spear and determining how much water is needed to stay healthy. The practical lessons here are based on real survival techniques and can be adapted to almost any outdoor situation, including making fire, deciphering animal tracks, and using natural materials to create necessary supplies. Written in an informal, entertaining style, this book for readers 8 and up is illustrated with drawings and cartoons throughout and includes vocabulary words, sidebars, and fascinating facts.

"Even readers who never travel to Amazonia will appreciate the region's complexity and significance after perusing this book, which ends with suggestions for ways to slow its destruction.... This volume should stimulate interest in this diverse and important region."School Library Journal
