Bus in Forest – level 1

26-06-2020 07:00

Some people like adventure. They live in forests. They farm and hunt animals.

An American man travels to Alaska in 1992. He wants to live in a forest. The man finds an empty old bus. He lives in the bus.

However, the weather is bad. The man has nothing to eat. In September 1992, a hunter finds the man. The man is dead. His body weighs only 67 pounds.

A writer writes a book about the man’s life. The book becomes a movie. It is very popular. Many people watch it. People travel to Alaska. People want to see the man’s bus. They stay in the bus.

Some people have problems. Rescuers must save them. The bus is not safe. Officials take the bus away by a helicopter.

Difficult words: adventure (something unusual and risky), hunter (the person who kills animals in the forest), weigh (to be heavy).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
