Fantastic piece of adventurer-historical-detectivesque journalism,
This review is from: The Lost City of Z: A Legendary British Explorer's Deadly Quest to Uncover the Secrets of the Amazon (Hardcover)
I took this book in the public library by pure chance. I had heard very very vaguely of Fawcett and nothing about the author.
I decided to read the book after having it at home for a few weeks and I could not put it down till I finished.
Serious journalistic approach, daring investigation work...it transports you to the last era of victorian pioneers. It is impossible not to feel you are also questing for Fawcett's adventures and fate.
A real susprise. Give it a chance a get hooked on it!
