Read full description of the books Himalayan Kidnap: The First Alex and James Eco-Aventure in Nepal:When sixteen-year-old Alex's parents ask him to deliver a mysterious package to their animal research camp in the Nepalese jungle, he and his twelve-year-old brother James do not have a clue about the trouble they are about to face. An unsuccessful ransom payment leads to an arduous journey through the crispy forests of the wild west of Nepal in pursuit of the terrorists who have captured their parents. Even with the help of their friend Atti, how can three children rescue the parents from armed kidnappers?
"Stunning descriptions of the flora and fauna of Nepal are subtly woven into this fast-moving story of two brothers on the trail of their kidnapped parents."
Rosemary Hayes, author of over 40 children's books
"A gripping and fast-paced adventure written by a biologist and traveller about luck, courage, and ultimately heroism. The exotic and sometimes dangerous Himalayan landscape is given to the reader with a total and vivid authenticity."
Victor Watson, author (incl. Paradise Barn series)
Read information about the authorAs a child Jane dreamed of intrepid adventures and encounters with exotic wildlife but it wasn’t until she was 22 and with a zoology degree to her credit that she started travelling: she organised a six-month expedition to catalogue the creatures living in Himalayan caves. To cut a very long story short, this trip lead to a parasitology then medical qualification, a husband and many more exotic trips. She experienced leeches, malaria mosquitoes, ticks and scorpions first hand and, realising how good information contributes to enjoyable travel, wrote her first travel health guide, Bugs Bites & Bowels, now in its fifth edition. Her first book was a travel narrative, Lemurs of the Lost World. She has seven books published so far.
Dr Jane has lived in various very remote corners of the globe and has spent about 11 years in South Asia. Jane’s third son made his first big trip – to Nepal – at the age of three weeks. Her experiences of living in rural Nepal proved a rich resource for her writing as her travel biography, first novel and adventure stories for children bear witness.
She currently lives in Cambridgeshire where she practised as a general practitioner for 15 years. She has more letters after her name than in it and teaches extensively on travel health including an annual commitment to a workshop on diarrhoea at the University of Cambridge medical school. She has written a double spread feature for Wanderlust magazine since it was first launched in 1993 and her words have been published in national newspapers and the academic press.
She tweets travel health tips as @longdropdoc, her occasional blogs are on her author website www.wilson-howarth.com where there are photogalleries relating to her books.
