When river pirates attack their ferry in the middle of the night, Nick escapes on a surfboard, along with his family. But the Amazon's wild currents separate Nick from his parents.
One minute they're together, the next, he's lost in a deadly rainforest filled with piranha, jaguars, alligators, and giant anaconda. Worse, he's got angry pirates on his tail and a box of stolen gold.
Talk about a family trip gone wrong! He wishes they'd never left California. A massive jungle storm hits and he's forced to build a makeshift cover of leaves and branches.
As the days pass and he delves deeper into the jungle, Nick must use all of his smarts to survive.
Can he find his parents before the pirates find him first? Can he ever hope to escape the Amazon rainforest?
This is the 4th children's book in the I Escaped Series about brave boys and girls who face real-world challenges and find ways to escape disaster.
