Out of the Jungle
Peter Boldt

$15.00

5.25 x 8 - 160 Pages

This unique story is filled with delightful tales of growing up in a tropical Mennonite colony.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp in horror as you follow Peter through his adventures in the Paraguayan Chaco.
You'll wonder how he survived being run over by a horse, nearly drowning, being lost in the wilderness at night, and many other memorable incidents.

"I read your stories with great interest: such a text is very rare, and I'm happy you wrote this for us to read -- many have lived it, but it is truly a unique story to read, and all the more important for that reason."
-Rudy Wiebe
Award-winning Canadian Author

"I found reading Peter's account of the first fifteen years of his life in Paraguay fascinating reading. One can only imagine what life was like living in the wilderness with a few other families. It entailed a lot of hardship but also excitement and adventure. One is forced to become self-sufficient and driven to depend on community. These times have passed except for what happens in a few isolated corners of this world. It's good to put these experiences on paper for future generations."
-Bert Witvoet
Former Editor of the Christian Courier
