About this product
- DescriptionWhen the young J.W. Bresee left his comfortable Pennsylvania farmhouse in 1897, he did t expect to be embarking on a decade long odyssey. J.W. went to the heart of the Amazon on what he thought would be a mission trip with the Methodists; instead he ended up getting lost, becoming a part of an indigeus tribe for several years, and participating in their rite of passage which involved learning the ways of the jaguar. After his rescue and return to the coast with his friend Pedro, they both signed up for an expedition whose goal was to navigate the Andes mountains and continue the exploration of Antarctica. During this trip through the Andes, J.W. met Salma, a beautiful young woman. On their way to Santiago, all three encountered warring factions high in the Andes mountains, helping them finally find peace. The expedition eventually made it to Antarctica where J.W. and his fellow expedition members, including Salma and a boat captain named Loonbat Wally, survived a horrific blizzard while stranded in a mountain cave. After their miraculous survival, J.W. decided to marry Salma and return home, but t before they encountered one last adventure on a depraved Caribbean island which put his life, along with the lives of Salma and Pedro, at risk.
