"Hiking into the middle of the Amazon jungle to build an airstrip and nearly starving to death. Greeting the president of Peru as he stepped out of his chopper to visit our school. Spoon feeding water to feverish Machiguengas and helping bury the ones who died."I never thought it unusual to have a 16-foot anaconda slithering around in our science class. Or going barefoot to school, getting stuck in the middle of landslides or getting cheap thrills careening through the streets of Lima in taxis in the dead of night."What was I doing in Peru?"Well, that's a long story. A funny, sad, sometimes unbelievable story.It's what this book is about--a really crazy family that loved adventure, loved God and loved the Machiguengas."
