I admit it, I'm a survival story junkie. But in the world of great escapes in hazardous environments, this book stands out. Young guys, traveling in South America on the cheap, meet and decide to trek into the real jungle, guided by one of them that says he knows the way to a remote native village and a river where they can pan for gold. What young guy could resist? The inevitable personality conflicts arise when four young men are together day after day and two decide to carry on when two go back. The harrowing tale of what happens to Yossi Ghinsberg when he and his friend get separated will keep you turning pages and admiring his grit and ingenuity. But unlike many adventure accounts, it is what happens in his life after that is just as fascinating. No spoilers! Read it for yourself. This adventure is very informative and worthwhile to know about.
