Synopsis: Jack's parents have bought a farmhouse in Nepal. It'll be the site of a new religion―their latest get-rich-quick scheme. Sure, the Berensons don't know quite how to get to the place. But once they arrive, their plan is sure to work.
When the Berenson family's travels leave Jack lost in the wilderness of Nepal, a patched-up old raft is the only way to track down his mom and dad. At least this time, Jack has company. He's riding with Harry from Connecticut, a traveling dude who has been trying to find himself―and who also wound up stranded.
As Jack and Harry ride down a winding river, they'll have to watch out for rocks, rapids, and even crocodiles
