1: I dedicate this book to my friends, and family. March, 2010
2: BAM, the plane just Slammed into the Amazon treetops, and out we came climbing out of the flaming plane. Crying in pain, Leondro laying on the top of the trees had a huge piece of glass stabbed into his right leg. "HELP!" He yelled.
4: Quickly I ran over to him and calmed him down. When he calmed down I slowly pulled the glass out of his leg. When the glass was out of his leg I wrapped his leg with a shirt. After that we all decided to make our way down the treetops.
5: On our way down the trees - we saw all kinds of animals, like monkeys, birds, and many more that where amazing.
6: Finally, after crawling down a 210 foot Kapok tree for hours we were finally on the Amazon Rainforest floor. After we fixed the wrapping, and washed the injuries; Leondro was crying for food. So he went to get some fruit. All of a sudden we heard Leondro screaming "ahhhhh, ahhhhh, get it off of me". When he got back there was a little monkey on his shoulder.
8: After we got something to eat, we decided to stay and rest for the day. The next day, it was the third day for us in the Amazon Rainforest. We started to move down the river, thinking that following the river would lead us to a small village, and the village people would lead us to safety.
9: Then all of a sudden a huge jaguar jumped out of the forest and started to sprint at us.
11: Quickly we ran as fast as we could. Then Arkell tripped over a root and was lying on the ground waiting to die. Then BAM a Chibiki Tribe Indian tackled the Jaguar and stabbed it in the heart with a spear.The Indian then invited us to his village.
12: When we arrived at the village we were welcomed by the entire tribe, and they invited us to the Great Fire Assembly. At the Great Fire Assembly the Chibiki Tribe did a spiritual dance that meant, "welcome to our village". The next morning the villagers walked us to the closest major city.
13: Two days later a rescue team arrived and took us to Rio De Janeiro.
15: Then at Rio De Janeiro we got on the first plane back to the United States of America. When I got home my family and I went to have dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. "Man it is good to be at home and out of the Amazon Rainforest".
