More than 900 lives were lost in the tragic mass suicides in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978. The entire civilized world was shaken by front-page photographs of hundreds of brightly clothed bodies lying all around the Jonestown Pavilion, led to their senseless deaths by an atheist cult leader named Jim Jones.
In this fast paced, action packed story, Billy Rivers begins by accurately recounting the demise of the Jim Jones cult, quoting directly from the “Jonestown Death Tape,” an actual recording made while the adults were drinking the deadly poison and giving it to their children. On that tragic day, a young man and a ten-year old boy escape into the tangled, snake infested jungles of Guyana where death lurks at every turn, whether by anaconda, bushmaster, crocodile, or jaguar.
Escape from Jonestown is not for the squeamish. There are hard fought, life and death struggles against man and beast – and death does not always lose. When a widowed missionary, the young and beautiful Rebekah Hamilton, and a corrupt army sergeant named Claspen Dortin enter the story, a chain of events unfolds that will keep you up late, turning the pages as faith and courage are tested to their outer limits.
You will most certainly not be disappointed when you join private investigator Terrance Clark and ten-year old Timmy on their death defying ride through the unforgiving jungles of South America where just surviving the night is a victory.
Author Billy Rivers grew up in rough and tumble “big timber” country where wild salmon, deer, elk, bears, and mountain lions abounded. He attended school on the reservation and learned to hunt, fish, fall trees, set chokers, and pull wood from the green chain at the local sawmills. His stories are must reads for all lovers of adventure – young and old alike.
