Overview

Based on the true story of a young girl who survives a plane crash in the Amazon jungle and learns not only to survive but thrive there.

In one deafening, terrifying moment, a beautiful young girl was thrown from a safe and civilized life into the teeming violence of the Amazon jungle. Frightened and vulnerable, she fights to survive in the fierce lushness of the Bright Green Hell, where death lay hiding, and a wild young warrior stood watching...

From the book: "She was in a trance. Removed, heightened, as when her mother lay dead on the bank.The shock of having him not back at camp, but here, knowing him naked. Her arms dangled at her sides; the strength had gone from her legs...
He leaned in and kissed her lightly on the lips and she drew back. He smiled and put his hand on the nape of her neck and tangled his fingers in her lush hair and drew her completely into him....and she remembered what her mother had told her.

"...don't be afraid. Don't be afraid of anything. Be open to things. That's the way to grow into being a woman."

"I don't understand".

"You'll know when it comes."

    Every once in awhile, I come across a sleeper. And I feel that reading books is worthwhile--doubly so. The writing is top-notch.
    The characters indelible.  The passage of a young girl into womanhood remarkable. Treat yourself to Bright
    Green Hell. It will live with you.

    Great and well-researched true story of young girl surviving a 2 mile drop from airplane
    hit by lightning and falling into the jungle. Unfortunately, the movie "Emerald Forest" stole
    this novel without paying for it. Read the book.  Forget the movie. It's memorable and special.
