Four travelers meet in Bolivia and set off into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but what begins as a dream adventure quickly deteriorates into a dangerous nightmare, and after weeks of wandering in the dense undergrowth, the four backpackers split up into two groups. But when a terrible rafting accident separates him from his partner, Yossi is forced to survive for weeks alone against one of the wildest backdrops on the planet. Stranded without a knife, map, or survival training, he must improvise shelter and forage for wild fruit to survive. As his feet begin to rot during raging storms, as he loses all sense of direction, and as he begins to lose all hope, he wonders whether he will make it out of the jungle alive.Lost in the Jungle is the story of friendship and the teachings of nature, and a terrifying true account that you won’t be able to put down.
Pat Young’s clear voice brings alive the world of Israeli best-selling author and motivational speaker Yossi Ghinsberg’s fascinating memoir Lost in the Jungle. Ghinsberg - who had no survival training - and three travelers journeyed into the Amazon rainforest in search of adventure, but ended up lost in the lush landscape. A rafting accident left him alone, without a knife or a map, and he had to fight to find food and shelter on his own. As his feet began to rot from exposure to storms, he lost hope that he could make it back to civilization. Somehow, he triumphed over the elements to return to tell his harrowing story.
