Jungleland: A Mysterious Lost City, a WWII Spy, and a True Story of Deadly Adventure (Paperback)
Temporarily Out of Stock
This is a very interesting book for anybody that loves adventure stories and wants to read about a mysterious destination located in Latin America - Ciudad Blanca: the White City. The fact that this book is based on a true story, about a New Yorker searching for a "lost city" in a tropical forest of Honduras, makes it even more interesting.
Stewart connects two stories from two different periods. The parallel story begins in 1939 with the famous American explorer Theodore Morde and finishes with descriptions of the author's own journey following in Morde's footsteps.
The very easy writing style based on exceptional historical research, interlaced with current hazardous political events related to this geographical location, made me feel like I was part of that journey from the start till the very end.
Absolutely a great book for any generation and maybe a topic for the next Indiana Jones type of movie.
