Author Ron Snell, an American, grew up in a missionary's home in the rainforests in Peru. "I wouldn't trade my childhood for any other," he says in this first of three books in his popular Jungle Series. "Conceived in the Amazon fairforest, 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 touching theirs would cost us. 'I hope this first book of the 'Rani Adventures' will bring you laughter, tears, and a new perspective on the old cliche; It's a jungle out there!"
