Defying Death in the Jungle by Gary Jeffrey

This title looks at extreme tales of survival in this wild forest environment. Learn about Colonel Percy Fawcett's disastrous journey up the poisoned river in 1908 and one backpacker's terrifying ordeal in the depths of the Bolivian rainforest. Graphic Survival Stories is an exciting new series about real life survival stories, in a graphic-novel format. Dramatic, full colour graphic illustrations are supported by short, accessible blocks of text and speech bubbles. Each title features three gripping tales of survival and includes an introduction to the habitat, maps, survival tips and a glossary to support the stories. Short summaries of more stories will prompt further research and discussion.
