In early 2007, Loic Pillois and Guilhem Nayral went on a 60-mile hike in the Amazon rain forest in French Guiana. Despite having a map and a compass, the two friends became hopelessly lost. They built fires, hoping to attract the attention of planes passing overhead, but their efforts didn't work. For weeks Loic and Guilhem survived by eating frogs, centipedes, turtles, and bird-eating spiders. Would the two men be able to find their way back to civilization before they died of starvation, dehydration, or an animal attack? Lost in a Rain Forest is a heart-stopping collection of true stories that dramatically describe what it's like to be lost and forced to survive in a rain forest. Captivating, first-person accounts of survivors include newlyweds lost in a Costa Rican jungle and a young woman who wandered through the Peruvian rain forest after surviving a plane crash. The book also includes general information about the world's rain forests and the incredible plants and animals that inhabit them. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the exciting survival tales. Written in a narrative format, this book is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
