The mystic and legendary British explorer Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett disappeared in the unknown and unexplored territory of Brazil’s Mato Grosso in 1925. For ten years he had wandered the forests and death-filled rivers in search of a fabled lost city. Finally, convinced that he had discovered the location, he set out for the last time with two companions, one of whom was his eldest son, to destination “Z,” never to be heard from again. This thrilling and mysterious account of Fawcett’s ten years of travels in deadly jungles and forests in search of a secret city was compiled by his younger son from manuscripts, letters, and logbooks. What happened to him after remains a mystery.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A tale of great adventure…a stirring and sensitive record, well written by a true explorer.”

    New York Times

  • “A book of great power…should be read by everyone.”

    Daily Telegraph

  •  “This fascinating, enjoyable, un-turn-off-able story could not have a more capable or appropriate a reader than the very excellent British trained actor Robin Sachs, who brings the jungle and all its inherent beauty and danger very much to life. His pronunciation of Portuguese words and places, along with other South American terms, is impressive and authentic sounding. This is the very spirit of adventure and a must-listen.”

    " Hard core adventure that puts Indiana Jones to shame. Fawcett wrote this account of his Amazonian adventures for his son before embarking on a doomed expedition to discover a fabled city of gold. Every member of that expedition disappeared without a trace. "

    " This is a very detailed - down to the last bug bite - account of exploration in the Amazon by Fawcett and unless you are seriously into that sort of thing I would opt for the other book on the subject - The Lost City of Z - which I think is much more readable. "
