I really enjoyed this book. It's interesting and educational. The story is mesmerizing: after being addicted to the outdoors (trees, plants, snakes, spiders, etc.) his entire life, an 18 year old guy makes a trip to Peru to journey into the Amazon and becomes even more addicted to it. He makes local friends and learns to survive in the Amazon. He tells of many journeys, some with others, and some solo, in which they see all kinds of wild animals and capture enormous snakes ("...as high as my knees."). His passion for the protection of wildlife and the untouched wilderness is noble and motivating.
My only disappointment was the reader. I thought his voice was just a bit too slow and deliberate. He tried to put some emotion into the story, but I found him a bit flat. My wife listened to him for a bit and said he sounded fine, so maybe it's just me.
That didn't ruin the book for me. It's a great listen, and I've recommended it to others.

This story was funny and serious. It opens your eyes to the domino effect that nature has on us and us on nature.
The writer creates an emotional journey that was worth the trip.
