Book One of the Rani Adventures begins with Ron Snell's birth as the eldest child of missionary parents living in the rainforests of Peru.

Colorfully depicting what growing up in such surroundings was like, Snell has captured a wide-ranging audience ranging from homeschool children to senior citizens.

"I wouldn't trade my childhood for any other," Snell writes.

"Conceived in the Amazon rainforest, I learned to walk and talk among the Machiguenga Indians who, to this day, call me 'Rani'.

"The 'Machis' were my first babysitters and friends. From them I learned to tie a house together, eat monkeys and macaws, and make dugout canoes. They laughed at my log rides down rampaging rivers and caught exotic pets for me.

"Life was one great adventure after another. After all, what could be more fun than perching in thorn trees at night to escape a herd of stampeding pigs?

"The Machiguengas adopted me and my family into theirs. As they touched our lives we discovered what it would cost us to touch theirs.

"I hope this first book of the Rani Adventures will bring you laughter, tears and a new perspective on the old cliche: 'It's a jungle out there!' "

This second edition is 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches.
