Review

'One of the Top 20 Best Travel Books of the Past Century' --The Times

'An observer of great wisdom and learning...' --Simon Winchester

'One reads him for literary delight and for the pleasure of meeting an Elizabethan spirit allied to a modern mind... but he is also an observer of penetrating intellect.' --Vita Sackville-West, Spectator

In his foreword Giles Foden suggests that Fleming belonged in a John Buchan novel, but there is also a touch of Bertie Wooster in his insouciant haplessness, delicious turns of phrase and sly wisdom. --Jake Kerridge, Sunday Telegraph

'One reads him for literary delight and for the pleasure of meeting an Elizabethan spirit allied to a modern mind... but he is also an observer of penetrating intellect.' --Vita Sackville-West, Spectator

From the Back Cover

"In 1932, Peter Fleming, a literary editor, traded his pen for a pistol to engage in the celebrated search for English adventurer Colonel P.H. Fawcett, who had gone missing in the jungles of central Brazil. With meager supplies, faulty maps, and a pack of rival newspapermen on their trail, Fleming and his companions marched, canoed, and fought through 3,000 miles of wilderness and alligator-ridden rivers in search of the fate of the lost colonel. One of the great adventure stories, Brazilian Adventure is as fresh a story today as it was when originally published in 1933."--BOOK JACKET. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
