The Lost City of Z: A Legendary British Explorer's Deadly Quest to Uncover The Secrets of the Amazon, David Grann
1 David Grann The Lost City of Z: A Legendary British Explorer's Deadly Quest to Uncover The Secrets of the Amazon
Pocket Books 233136 Great Britain 2010 1847394434 / 9781847394439 Softcover Very Good Condition The 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. 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 337 pages.

High Adventure, Edmund Hilary
2 Edmund Hilary High Adventure
Readers Book Club 230284 London Hardcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket A. Spark [Maps] George Djurkouic [Sketches] Everest: forbidding, exhilarating, unconquerable. All courageous attempts by man to reach its summit by heading up the northern side from Tibet had failed. The southern approach through Nepal had never before been climbed, due to its impossibly steep ice-covered slopes and the country's policies. But in 1951 Edmund Hillary joined an expedition to find a new route up Everest from the south, which led to a new chapter in mountaineering history. The climbers' determination, endurance and battle against the elements culminated with their famous climb in 1953 as they finally reached the summit of this formidable mountain. This is Hillary's own account of the treacherous and breathtaking journeys. 256 pages. Illustrator: A. Spark [Maps] George Djurkouic [Sketches]. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

BBC 234118 London 2007 0297844490 / 9780297844495 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good No. 1 bestseller and superstar doing what he does best, introducing millions of avid readers to little-known peoples and places.Until the early 1990s, when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, travelling behind the iron curtain was never easy. In undertaking his new journey through Eastern Europe, breathing in its rich history, and exquisite sights and talking to its diverse peoples, Michael fills what has been a void in his own experience and that of very many others. NEW EUROPE is very much a voyage of discovery, from the snows of the Julian Alps to the beauty of the Baltic sea, he finds himself in countries he'd barely heard of, many unfamiliar and mysterious, all with tragic histories and much brighter futures.During his 20-country adventure Palin meets Romanian lumberjacks, drives the 8.58 stopping train from Poznan to Wolsztyn, treads the catwalk at a Budapest fashion show, learns about mine-clearing in Bosnia and watches Turkish gents wrestling in olive oil. As with all his bestselling books, in his uniquely entertaining style, Palin opens up a new and undiscovered world to millions of readers. Illustrated with colour photographs. TV Tie-In.
