In 1995, Stephen Kirkpatrick joined a five-man expedition into the remote jungles of the Peruvian Amazon. Kirkpatrick's assignment was to document an area of the rainforest that had never before been photographed, nor by most accounts, ever explored by white men.

Within hours of their departure, an inaccurate map and a series of bad decisions leave the group hopelessly lost in the depths of the Amazon jungle. What began as a career-making photo expedition quickly turned into a desperate struggle for survival.

The five men battle poisonous reptiles, hungry bugs, torrential rains, brutal heat, and an unforgiving landscape in an attempt to find their way back to civilization. They soon learn that survival is not only a physical, but a mental and spiritual challenge as well.

Lost in the Amazon is a gripping, sometimes humorous, and ultimately inspirational story about the human drive to survive, and about clinging to faith in the worst circumstances imaginable.

    Far too religious, for this genre

    This book was very promising when I first purchased it on my KOBO. However, the author (and main character throughout the book) mentions prayers and god so many times that it completely takes away from the mood and setting of the book. The author turned what would have been an interesting story of survival into a sunday sermon. Whenever the crew overcomes some large obstacle it isn't because they are capable, have great native guides, or are competent adults able to sort through issues at hand- it is all because of prayers done by the main character. I was severely let down by this book solely by the fact that it is overburdened with the author using the story to preach his religion, while making sure to denounce others. For example; the native americans (who he continuously calls indians....what publisher let that slide?) who are helping carry all his gear and who are his guides through the Amazon have their own religions, beliefs and faiths. Yet, the author makes a point in saying "of course it is just mythology" and then proceeds to build up christianity again. I stopped reading this book after that point. Half way through when he started going on about how prayers were the reason they survived. Pitty, had he left out his religious views and focused on actually writing about being lost in the Amazon it would have made for a much better read. One last note: he writes "I was feeling the sunburn despite the SPF 15" .......seriously? SPF15? You're at the equator, you're gonna need more than SPF 15. I love these genres of books, but only if the individual being lost actually has some skills to begin with. Otherwise, it's just another fool lost in the jungle. Much better name for this book if you ask me.
