Product description

An epic trip into the Amazon’s lush jungle, complete with sinister relatives, exotic beasts and poison-tip arrows. A bit like Northern Lights in a dugout canoe. No greater adventure can be imagined. In 1910, orphan Maia is sent from her English boarding school to the fabulous wilderness of the Amazon jungle. She’s meant to live with distant relatives there. But Maia’s relatives are not all they seem. Now she and a mysterious Indian boy, Finn, must flee for their lives up the great river. Can they survive in this uncharted world of anacondas and crocodiles, poisonous trees and strange, impossible animals?
