Publisher's Summary

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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

a REAL story

Has Brazilian Adventure turned you off from other books in this genre?

No way. This is a great genre

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration is quite good. Story is staggeringly boring

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Brazilian Adventure?

The entire first half of the book could be readily turned into one brief chapter. Boring minutia extraordinaire!

Any additional comments?

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.
