Extreme Adventures: Anaconda Ambush by Justin D'Ath


Extreme Adventures: Anaconda Ambush by Justin D'Ath

In the depths of the Amazon rainforest, explorer Sam Fox is on a field trip with his famous botanist uncle. Little does he know that he may not escape the jungle alive! Having jumped from his canoe in order to avoid an army of venomous fire ants, Sam is swept over a waterfall and nearly drowned, before finding himself trapped in an underground cave that is hiding a fortune in gold...as well as a giant anaconda. Can Sam cheat death again? And if so, will he survive long enough to find his uncle? Packed with jaguars, piranhas, indigenous tribes with poisoned darts and greedy Westerners with guns, this read is not for the faint-hearted...
