I wouldn't trade my childhood for any other. Conceived in the Amazon rainforest, I learned to walk and talk among the Machiguenga Indians who, to this day, I call Rani.

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.

From the Author:

"Some of the stuff my brother and sisters and I got to do was just plain crazy, but my parents had a lot of faith in God and in us and especially in the Machiguengas, who often saved us from our own stupidity. There were lots of times when we'd ask Mom if we could do something and she'd say, 'Over my dead body.' So then we'd ask Dad and get the go-ahead. I wrote the book because I want people to get to know my family. But you have to understand that when I say 'family,' I'm talking about six Snells and 6,000 Machiguengas."

Book Description HANNIBAL BOOKS, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Book One of the Rani Adventures begins with Ron Snell's birth as the eldest child of missionary parents living in the rainforests of Peru. Colorfully depicting what it was like growing up in such surroundings, Snell has captured a wide-ranging audience ranging from homeschool children to senior citizens. "I wouldn't trade my childhood for any other," Snell writes. "Conceived in the Amazon rainforest, I learned to walk and talk among the Machiguenga Indians who, to this day, call me "Rani." "The 'Machis' were my first babysitters and friends. From them I learned to tie a house together, eat monkeys and macaws, and make dugout canoes. They laughed at my log rides down rampaging rivers and caught exotic pets for me. Life was one great adventure after another. After all, what could be more fun than perching in thorn trees at night to escape a herd of stampeding pigs? "The Machiguengas adopted me and my family into theirs. As they touched our lives we discovered what it would cost us to touch theirs. "I hope this first book of the Rani Adventures will bring you laugher, tears and a new perspective on the old cliche: 'It's a jungle out there!' " The second edition (5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches) is larger than the first edition (4 1/4 inches by 7 inches. Seller Inventory # AAV9780929292830
