Surviving the Jungle

M. Weber (author)

Publisher: Full Tilt Press ISBN: 9781629207810

A group of friends plan a trip to explore the Amazon rainforest. They have a map and some supplies, but the jungle is thick with trees. There are very few paths. The friends realize that they are lost and no one knows where to look for them. That is the beginning of Loic Pillois and Guilhem Nayral’s dangerous adventure. Iron Will: Surviving the Jungle tells five shocking stories of being lost in the rainforest. The survivors faced deadly animals, like jaguars and poisonous spiders, and encountered dangerous terrain, with heavy rains, flooding, and waterfalls. But readers will learn how they each made it out alive, with little more than an iron will.

Iron Will: Surviving the Sea tells the story of five shipwrecks, and what it took for the survivors to endure until they were rescued. From surviving in an air pocket in a sunken ship at the bottom of the ocean, to the longest solo survival at sea, readers will learn how these individuals persevered against all odds.
