The Lost City of Z by David Grann
If you are in the mood for an adventure tale full of history and suspense, this one should fit the bill. Colonel Percy Fawcett was just one of many explorers intent on both exploring the Amazon river and the surrounding jungles. He is also one of many of such explorers who disappeared within the Amazonian jungles in search of the elusive Lost City of Z (aka El Dorado). Follow this journalist as he retraces Fawcett’s explorations and see how little and how much has changed since then.
If you are a fan of Indiana Jones, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, or TinTin, you may be intrigued to find a connection with Colonel Percy Fawcett. Join us for the Coffee Talk Book Discussion at the Cumming branch on Tuesday, June 10th at 1:30 p.m. to hear more.
