Item Description...
Why would someone willingly forego television, amusement parks, shopping malls, and other staples of an American childhood? For Ron Snell, whose parents are missionaries, life in the U.S.A. seems like a concentration camp compared to growing up among the Machiguenga Indians in the jungles of Peru. There, Ron, or "Rani" as the Indians call him, and his siblings learn to tie a house together, eat monkeys and macaws, and make dug-out canoes.

Publishers Description
Book One of the Rani Adventures begins with Ron Snell's birth as the eldest child of missionary parents living in the rainforests of Peru. Colorfully depicting what it was like growing up in such surroundings, Snell has captured a wide-ranging audience ranging from homeschool children to senior citizens. "I wouldn't trade my childhood for any other," Snell writes. "Conceived in the Amazon rainforest, I learned to walk and talk among the Machiguenga Indians who, to this day, call me "Rani." "The 'Machis' were my first babysitters and friends. From them I learned to tie a house together, eat monkeys and macaws, and make dugout canoes. They laughed at my log rides down rampaging rivers and caught exotic pets for me. Life was one great adventure after another. After all, what could be more fun than perching in thorn trees at night to escape a herd of stampeding pigs? "The Machiguengas adopted me and my family into theirs. As they touched our lives we discovered what it would cost us to touch theirs. "I hope this first book of the Rani Adventures will bring you laugher, tears and a new perspective on the old cliche: 'It's a jungle out there ' " The second edition (5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches) is larger than the first edition (4 1/4 inches by 7 inches.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great read!  Jan 22, 2008
A mixture of the hilarious and the poignant, "It's a Jungle Out There" is a thoroughly enjoyable read. His insights into a totally different culture and the total lack of consumerism that was a part of the culture they grew up in was refreshing. His observation that he and his siblings hated to leave the jungle to come to "civilization" was a good commentary...maybe our "civilization" isn't so civil after all.

If you've wondered what it would be like to be a Missionary's Kid, this book will give you a good idea. Sit down and enjoy! Let it take you back to being a kid too!
Parenting in perspective  Jan 20, 2007
Our entire family read this outloud and we laughed hard and long. I'm afraid to let my kids cross the street, wait until you read about this family living in the jungle and what they let their kids do! True story. Helped my kids have a sense of what brave is and enabled them, in turn, to take courage! We liked everything in the series that we read.
A good premise, but...  Jun 1, 2005
I have to say, I thought I'd really enjoy this book. It seemed to have a lot of the kind of stories I like, about exotic countries and adventures. The stories themselves were very good, I can't say believable, because they weren't, but they are all true. It is organized roughly chronilogically, but in places it tends to bounce around a little.

I thought his descriptions of life in the book were excellent, and often hilarious. Especially about the car trip, (hark to all kids who have mother's who love to grip handles when the fathers speed)! However, for some reason, I couldn't get into this book. It took me over a month, in between reading about 10 other books, to finish it! Maybe it is because it is divided into about 16 unrelated stories and I tend to like books that flow, rather than short stories. Anyway, it's a good read if you like this sort of thing, and worth a try to anyone!
Excellent  Feb 28, 2004
As a father of MKs (missionary kids) I raised my children in a setting which was more similar to than different from the Peruvian jungle where Ron Snell grew up. We are back in the United States now, and are having a blast reading It's A Jungle Out There! as a family. The stories may seem outlandish to someone who never lived in a tribal setting, but we can believe it all!

Snell's humour is irresistable, his descriptions vivid enough to leave lasting impressions, and his love of life contagious. All of that makes the book valuable, but woven through the stories are important lessons about life too. I recommend this book highly. It surely would be an important addition to any child's bookshelf (if the child could keep it away from his/her parents!).

The Truth About an MK's life  Jul 8, 2003
This is a great book. Many people would think that it could not possibly be all true, but it is. I am also a missionary kid (MK) and although I never lived in the jungle, I lived through some of these same adventures. The last chapter is especially true (particuarlly for MKs from the '80s). Parts of it were so true that it was hard to read. But it was a great childhood. Ron Snell speaks out for all of us MKs!
