Description
The inspiration for David Grann's widely honored book The Lost City of Z, Lieutenant Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett's ten-year search for the fabled city through the forests and rivers of the Amazon jungle is chronicled here in his own words. Fawcett set out for a final trek in 1925, accompanied by his son Jack and a friend named Raleigh, and disappeared—the last words he sent back to his wife were, "You need have no fear of any failure." A sensation when it was published in 1953, praised by Graham Greene and compared to Heart of Darkness, Exploration Fawcett was assembled from Fawcett's manuscripts, letters, and logbooks by his younger son Brian, who set the tale with his own prologue, epilogue, and illustrations.
