    **NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING ROBERT PATTINSON, CHARLIE HUNNAM AND SIENNA MILLER**`A riveting, exciting and thoroughly compelling tale of adventure'JOHN GRISHAMThe story of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, the inspiration behind Conan Doyle's The Lost World Fawcett was among the last of a legendary LES MER breed of British explorers. For years he explored the Amazon and came to believe that its jungle concealed a large, complex civilization, like El Dorado. Obsessed with its discovery, he christened it the City of Z. In 1925, Fawcett headed into the wilderness with his son Jack, vowing to make history. They vanished without a trace. For the next eighty years, hordes of explorers plunged into the jungle, trying to find evidence of Fawcett's party or Z. Some died from disease and starvation; others simply disappeared. In this spellbinding true tale of lethal obsession, David Grann retraces the footsteps of Fawcett and his followers as he unravels one of the greatest mysteries of exploration. `A wonderful story of a lost age of heroic exploration' Sunday Times `Marvellous ... An engrossing book whose protagonist could out-think Indiana Jones' Daily Telegraph`The best story in the world, told perfectly' Evening Standard `A fascinating and brilliant book' Malcolm Gladwell LES MINDRE Forlagets omtale **NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING ROBERT PATTINSON, CHARLIE HUNNAM AND SIENNA MILLER**`A riveting, exciting and thoroughly compelling tale of adventure'JOHN GRISHAMThe story of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, the inspiration behind Conan Doyle's The Lost World Fawcett was among the last of a legendary breed of British explorers.
