Spirit of the Jungle is a heart-stopping contemporary adventure inspired by Rudyard Kipling's classic The Jungle Book, from real-life adventurer Bear Grylls.

Could you survive in the jungle?

After being washed away down the Wainganga River during a flash flood, Mak wakes up alone in the Indian jungle. The jungle is full of danger - poisonous snakes, cunning monkeys and desperate poachers - and every step Mak takes might be his last.

Mak finds help and friendship from other jungle creatures, but he will need all his skill and luck to survive and make his way back home.
