Summary
The improbable story of how Chapman was kidnapped from her rural Colombian village at the age of 5 and abandoned in the jungle. According to the tale, pieced together by her daughter, Vanessa James, Chapman adopted monkey ways--eating what they ate, climbing trees and mimicking their calls--until five years later, when she connected with some hunters in the hopes of being returned to her family. Instead, she was left in a brothel on the outskirts of the nearby city. There she was kept in semislavery as a house servant. Gradually, she relearned Spanish and the rudiments of civilized life. Escaping, she fell in with other homeless children and was ultimately taken in by a brutal Mafia family, where she was again reduced to servitude. The book ends when the author, around the age of 14, was rescued by a neighbor's daughter, who offered her a real home in another town
