In 1925 Colonel P. H. Fawcett embarked on a journey into a dangerous and largely unexplored region of Brazil in search of a fabled lost city and was never seen again. Journalist Peter Fleming's interest in Fawcett's disappearance led him to answer an advertisement to join an expedition to explore the rivers of Brazil with the aim of ascertaining the explorer's fate. Though Colonel Fawcett's disappearance remains a mystery to this day, Peter Fleming's wild adventure in the jungles of Brazil is recognized as one of the 20th century's best-loved travel classics.

a REAL story
No way. This is a great genre
Narration is quite good. Story is staggeringly boring
The entire first half of the book could be readily turned into one brief chapter. Boring minutia extraordinaire!
This should never have been put into a book. A short story, such as is found in National Geographic would have made slightly interesting reading. If you want adventure read "Into Africa" - THAT is a 'can't put it down' adventure book. This book was awful, just awful.
