The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann

Published February 2009 by Doubleday Canada

ISBN: 978-0385513531

The Recommend:

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon tells the story of obsessed Victorian explorer Percy Fawcett and the author, David Grann’s, own compulsion to discover what happened to Fawcett after he disappeared in the Amazonian jungle in 1925.

It’s a gripping book, all high adventure and cholera, and I highly recommend it.
