S: My Amazing Amazon Adventure By Therese Graven
BC: When I class of children are taking a trip to Rio De Janeiro, there plane crashed in the Amazon Jungle. Now the children must survive out in the wilderness! It is a complete mistake that all of this happened, but everything happens for a reason but I am still trying to figure out what the reason for this was.
FC: My Amazing Amazon Adventure By Therese Graven
1: ~I Dedicate this book to My family ~ March 2010
2: It was supposed to be just another class trip. We were on our way to Rio De Janerio, When suddenly we went SPLAT on a HUGE canopy of Amazon trees.
3: We rushed down the trees and hit the amazon floor! | We each had some special kind of Injury | THen suddenly we realized that now we must hunt for survival. | Well I wasn't hungry so I laid down where ever there wasn't mushy stuff and then I fell asleep.
4: I have now been in the Amazon for a while and now its time for me to gather the food.. So I was walking through the green sticky Amazon and I saw spiders, ants, cockroaches, and finally.. FRUIT!! Yes I was so excited and I was heading back to camp with boatloads!! When I got back it was already time for bed. So i ate and then fell asleep.
5: Next I saw a full grow black Caiman. It was HUGE! It was about 20 feet long and 3 feet wide! All that wondering around made me thirsty so I went by the river and drank the water. I didn't care what it tasted like. I mean it was WATER! I saw countless other animals all mysterious and majestic. This was truly a place like no other. Although it is amazing you really need to watch out for the other animals that will kill you if they get the chance. | When I woke up I felt the calling to explore the Amazon. I ate and was off. It was the most incredible thing ever! I saw a Jaguar! OH YA and it wasn't in the zoo! It was free! I walked away cause it looked kind of hungry and I didn't want to be eaten for lunch.
6: When I was walking back to the camp I ran into some Amazon tribe. So I quickly ran back to camp to get the others. Then we followed the tribe into a darker part of the amazon. They fed us, taught us dances, and they pointed us to the right direction for a nice camp where you can see the sky. It had been such a long time that I have seen skies!
7: I wasn't feeling to good today. I think that I'm really sick because I miss home and my family and friends. It's like moving to a place where you don't want to move to and not being able to contact any of the people you love. I thought that it was going to be easy living out in the wild. The actors and actresses make it look so easy. Well after I cleared my head that I can't go back and to just deal with it, I got up and I wanted to just roam around the place. I found some pretty cool stuff like, rivers, swamps, waterfalls, and all these other things. I am like so bored being here. It's not as dangerous as I wanted it to be. I went back to camp and I went to sleep and hoping that this was all just a NIGHTMARE
8: So when I woke up, I went to a near-by river to clean up. I did that and as I was walking I have already seen so many airplanes. I tried to get their attention but nothing seemed to work. So I ran back to camp and I told everyone what I saw. They were very shocked and happy! We tried all day, but they never saw us.
9: We started throwing rocks, jumping, yelling, throwing food, we did that for about 10 minutes until the airplane disappeared. We went back to camp with no success and for the rest of the night we were quiet cause we failed. | When me and the camper woke up we decided to try to find the airplanes and try to get their attention. We looked for them and finally we spotted on!! We were all so excited!
10: I woke up, and I was determined to find the helicopter and get its attention. I ran and ran and ran until I spotted one! I did the same routine as yesterday. I yelled, jumped, threw rocks and food. As I was just about to give up, the helicopter came down and got me! I told them to stay right here and that I will get the others. So I ran as fast as I could and got the others!
11: As everyone else I was excited to go back home! The helicopter was cramped inside but no one cared. The flight felt as if it was endless. It was a long time but we were all still really excited! It took about two days and there was barley any food. Thats always a down-sider. Then we returned home to our families!
12: When I got home everyone was so excited to see me! I felt so loved, but it wasn't long after that, that they took me to go see a doctor. There was nothing wrong with me so I was happy about that!
13: After I went to the doctor I returned home and ate all I could cause I missed the food so much! I realized that I really loved food! So after that I went to bed!
