PAGING THROUGH HISTORY

Lost City of Z:  A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann

In 1925, the legendary British explorer Percy Fawcett ventured into the Amazon jungle, in search of a fabled civilization. He never returned. Over the years countless perished trying to find evidence of his party and the place he called “The Lost City of Z.” In this masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, journalist David Grann interweaves the spellbinding stories of Fawcett’s quest for “Z” and his own journey into the deadly jungle, as he unravels the greatest exploration mystery of the twentieth century.

“There are not many words in the English language as provocative as “lost.” Whether its people, expeditions or entire civilizations, we are drawn to things that have seemingly disappeared without a trace. What I personally find just as interesting are the individuals compelled to go to the ends of the Earth in an effort to find what has vanished. British explorer Percy Fawcett was one of those men, driven to find the fabled Lost City of Z deep in the Amazon jungle. In an ironic twist of fate, Percy’s obsession led to his own disappearance, placing him among history’s vanished.” -- Kevin
