This is a study guide for the book titled Ambushed in Jaguar Swamp, by Dave & Neta Jackson. In this book, 13-year-old Kyemap wants to accept the Christian teachings of Mr. Grubb, a missionary to the Lengua Indians of Paraguay, but he is afraid to give up the traditions of his people.

There are 40 books in the TRAILBLAZER series. Each book focuses on the life of a Christian hero or a missionary. The books are classified as historical fiction because one or more fictional young people are included, but the information about the hero/missionary is true -- and there is a biographical section at the end of each book. The stories are suspenseful and engaging -- and readers learn about many Christian heroes and missionaries.

Ambushed in Jaguar Swamp is set in Paraguay in 1896; Barbrooke Grubb is the missionary.

Each section of this guide contains vocabulary exercises, questions for discussion, and a reading activity. Extension activities and an answer key are also included.


1) This guide is designed to be interactive -- it is not in workbook format.
