"Like To Be Outdoors And "to be outdoors and a childhood spending time outside with often improvised games could write a similar story with only different surroundingsWhen she was 17 and was leaving her childhood behind to go to boarding school in Switzerland she had roblems adjusting This is very understandable she was in Switzerland she had roblems adjusting This is very understandable she was in a westernized world A very small ortion of the book is dealing with her adjustments I think she must have missed her family a lot who were scattered around the world Religion seemed to BE EDITED OUT OF THE BOOK WHY NOT CALL edited out of the book Why not call Good Spirit God and the Evil the Devil Is it to get better sales out of the book Was it really a suicide attempt in one of the last chapters or was it to copy the mutilation ractices of the tribal women to block out emotional ain Was this also an editorial decision I don t like the Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church principal of convertingeople and I get uneasy when I read about leading by example because then you find that your way of life is better there is judging in that statement Of course the whole evangelicmissionary A (kinda) Country Christmas part was the decision of the author sarents But the author is also searching for some justification about her arent s way of life Do we really have to believe the tribe only knew warfare and fear That there was no love or forgiveness in their own ways until the Kuegler family came That the children of the tribe didn t lay because they only were afraid I don t buy thatBut there also were interesting things in the book the way of life of the tribe for example The author doesn t judge her arents or siblings or complains about anything I do admire that about her Sabine Kuegler grew up in the jungles of West Papua Indonesia among an indigenous tribe Child of the Jungle is a memoir about her childhood and transition to adolescence which she makes after returning to Europe Kuegler is a good storyteller her experiences are interesting because of their specificity but at the same time they are universal to children everywhere The reader gets to hear about tribal warfare marriage customs games relationships and I laughed out loud many times throughout this book but just as many times was moved by the emotional depth of some of the occurrences Child of the Jungle is an international bestseller for good reason I definitely recommend this book.
