Imagine being stranded in a tropical jungle. You're all alone and all you have are the clothes you're wearing and whatever the jungle can offer you. The heat is scorching, the environment treacherous. How do you survive? Do you stay where you are and wait for rescue, or do you go in search of help? How do you keep the animals at bay? What do you eat?

These are just a few of the questions facing Sam after his plane crashes. In this nail-biting story of survival, the jungle throws everything at him, from scorpions and piranhas to quicksand and floodwater. Sam recounts his days and his struggles with sometimes gory detail, but his tale is brightened by his achievements - lighting a fire, catching his first fish - and by the river otter he befriends.
