Product Description

Review

"What a fun read! Stories from a guy with a great memory of his exotic childhood carry truths that sneak up on you when you're just reading for entertainment. Read it to your kids. Read it for yourself." -- Jerry B. Jenkins, writer-in-residence, Moody Bible Institute

From the Publisher

Combine one family of American missionaries and 6,000 Machiguenga Indians with the Amazon jungle of Peru and you have a dynamite recipe for adventure. Written for ages 12 through adult, It's a Jungle Out There! is a book like no other. Ron's unique sense of humor is liberally sprinkled throughout each page. Yet, while you are laughing at his many escapades, you are also experiencing the blunt realities of primitive tribal life. And you come away with the realization that missions are needed, and that the Gospel changes lives. It's a Jungle Out There! appeals to a wide market. From youth groups to home schoolers to anyone who enjoys a good tale well told, this is a book that won't spend time on your shelf.

Format: Paperback
As a father of MKs (missionary kids) I raised my children in a setting which was more similar to than different from the Peruvian jungle where Ron Snell grew up. We are back in the United States now, and are having a blast reading It's A Jungle Out There! as a family. The stories may seem outlandish to someone who never lived in a tribal setting, but we can believe it all!
Snell's humour is irresistable, his descriptions vivid enough to leave lasting impressions, and his love of life contagious. All of that makes the book valuable, but woven through the stories are important lessons about life too. I recommend this book highly. It surely would be an important addition to any child's bookshelf (if the child could keep it away from his/her parents!).

It's a jungle out there

by Chris barber
This is a great story.It's exotic, it's funny,and the pictures help you imagine almost exactly what it was like then.The book virtually explains what it's like to be a kid with missionary parents growing up in the jungles of Peru .You also learn about South American tribes such as the Michiguengas.All written with a sense of humor.One of my favorite parts was,when he observed that "When they are laughing you know you're in trouble."
I highly suggest this book to anyone who likes to laugh and learn about other cultures.

"It's a Jungle Out There!" by Ron Snell is a captivating book which tells of Ron Snell's childhood years in the Peruvian jungle. Growing up with the Machiguenga Indians provides the perfect setting for hilarious adventures and mishaps. A great pleasure read or a read-aloud. Adults and kids will enjoy this one. Follow Ron as he loses his heart to the jungle and when you've finished your heart will remain in the jungle too.
