Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Interweaves the story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who vanished during a 1925 expedition into the Amazon to find an ancient civilization, with the author's own adventure-filled quest into the uncharted wilderness to uncover the mysteries surrounding Fawcett's final journey and the secrets of what really lies deep in the Amazon jungle. 125,000 first printing.

Review:
"...Grann provides an in-depth, captivating character study that has the relentless energy of a classic adventure tale."

Publishers Weekly, 10/13/2008

Review:
"The reader is taken just as close to Grann as the author is to Fawcett - tantalizingly close but never touching. His findings give us as complete a picture of the city of Z as we're likely to get, even if Fawcett forever remains brilliantly and maddeningly nowhere to be seen."

Karla Starr, Los Angeles Times, 02/22/2009

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 237 x 166 mm. Brand New Book. A grand mystery reaching back centuries. A sensational disappearance that made headlines around the world. A quest for truth that leads to death, madness or disappearance for those who seek to solve it. The Lost City of Z is a blockbuster adventure narrative about what lies beneath the impenetrable jungle canopy of the Amazon. After stumbling upon a hidden trove of diaries, acclaimed New Yorker writer David Grann set out to solve the greatest exploration mystery of the twentieth century What happened to the British explorer Percy Fawcett and his quest for the Lost City of Z? In 1925 Fawcett ventured into the Amazon to find an ancient civilization, hoping to make one of the most important discoveries in history. For centuries Europeans believed the world s largest jungle concealed the glittering kingdom of El Dorado. Thousands had died looking for it, leaving many scientists convinced that the Amazon was truly inimical to humankind. But Fawcett, whose daring expeditions helped inspire Conan Doyle s The Lost World, had spent years building his scientific case. Captivating the imagination of millions around the globe, Fawcett embarked with his twenty-one-year-old son, determined to prove that this ancient civilization--which he dubbed Z --existed. Then he and his expedition vanished. Fawcett s fate--and the tantalizing clues he left behind about Z --became an obsession for hundreds who followed him into the uncharted wilderness. For decades scientists and adventurers have searched for evidence of Fawcett s party and the lost City of Z. Countless have perished, been captured by tribes, or gone mad. As David Grann delved ever deeper into the mystery surrounding Fawcett s quest, and the greater mystery of what lies within the Amazon, he found himself, like the generations who preceded him, being irresistibly drawn into the jungle s green hell. His quest for the truth and his stunning discoveries about Fawcett s fate and Z form the heart of this complex, enthralling narrative. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780385513531
