'No one has ever come out alive'. Hal and Roger Hunt crash-land into the middle of a pioneering expedition to the unmapped regions of the greatest jungle on earth: the Amazon. And when their mission to explore the uncharted territory of the Pastaza River goes off course ...it's the survival of the fittest.
A reissue of Willard Price's classic adventure series set in the animal kingdom. Amazon Adventures is the first in the series.
"Price knew all the right buttons to press to excite a young reader - exotic locations, nasty villains, wild animals and lashings of peril." - David Barnett, "The Guardian"
