Writer for the New York Times and GQ, Mark Adams is also the acclaimed author of Mr. America. In this fascinating travelogue, Adams follows in the controversial footsteps of Hiram Bingham III, who’s been both lionized and vilified for his discovery of the famed Lost City in 1911 - but which reputation is justified?
“Adams deftly weaves together two story lines, each peopled with striking characters and astonishing landscapes.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Now I'm ready for Machu Picchu
Maybe - after going to Machu Picchu. I think I would hear it in a new way
The description of sunrise on the Winter Solstice and learning about Hiram Bingham
He made the characters come alive without overdoing it
While I read this book in preparation for a trip to Machu Picchu, I enjoyed getting an insiders perspective, one that I know I won't get as a tourist.
Interesting but condescending.
