Publisher's Summary

In 1954, in a remote South American village, a four-year-old girl was abducted and then abandoned deep in the Colombian rainforest. So begins the incredible true story of Marina Chapman, who went on to spend several years alone in the jungle, her only family a troop of capuchin monkeys. Using instinct to guide her, she copied everything they did and soon learned to fend for herself.
At around 10 years old, a completely feral Marina was returned to civilisation by hunters, who sold her as a slave to a brothel. Beaten daily and groomed to be a prostitute, she escaped - to live the perilous existence of a Colombian city street kid. Marina's life as a wild child wasn't over. In some ways, it had only just begun.
This is her astonishing story.

biography

I knew there was a bug problem with kidnappings, sex trade and such, but to hear of someone's personally story, and even remembering as young as she did. It put you in touch with it more than just hearing it on the news. It is sad and heart breaking how people are treated in some countries, especially women and children.

girl with no name

The start of the story I found gripping and did not want to stop listening to , but towards the end I felt the story flagged and disappointing I wanted more ... but overall a great story with lots of emotion and determination.
