This fascinating story begins: "Tell us all about your life in the jungle," they asked me again and again. "I don't think I can," I answered. "It was such a different world -- how can I possibly explain it?" "Well then," said a soft-spoken little friend in the front row, "just tell us some stories." And so I did. Some were funny, some were sad, and some were ... well ... you'll see ... Snell is a marvelous storyteller, and he and his family had plenty of adventures as they worked and grew and lived among the Machiguengas.
The third in the series of the Rani Adventures is filled with more true stories of high pitched tension and hilarious adventure.
In this delightfully written book, Ron continues his memoir. His parents are Wycliffe translators, who live much as the Machiguenga do. Ron spends much of his time with his Peruvian Indian friends, helping with projects, which often leads to fascinating and hilarious adventures. Ron loves this life, and he writes with a warmth and cleverness that makes this book hard to put down. The other books in this series are available from Bookshare.
