This book is without a doubt, one of the funniest and most interesting travel books I've read in years.
I felt I was almost travelling with the Jordans, through the forests and up the rivers of South America. Fighting off mosquitos, ants and eating meat with grubs!
It's an easy read, and I've passed it onto my daughter of 13 yrs. I'm hoping it will help her develop an adventurous spirit coupled, with a sense of wonder and care for the rain forests and the people who live in them.
