The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann
- I enjoyed this book.
- I would recommend this book to a friend.
This nonfiction books tells the story of co. Percy Fawcett, a British explorer who went missing on his last expedition to the Amazon in 1925. He was looking for the city he called “Z”, a city like El Dorado. He, his son and his son’s friend ventured into the jungle alone, braving insects, unknown terrain, hostile tribes, lack of food, and poisonous insects. The author alternates between telling their story, and telling the story of his travels to Brazil to search for evidence of what happened to Fawcett’s party, as their fate was still unknown 80 years later.
