About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Author David Grann explored this history in The Lost City of Z a few years ago and it's a great companion piece to Exploration Fawcett, an autobiographical account of Fawcett's adventures compiled from his journals, manuscripts, letters, and notes by his other son, Brian. It's a thrilling, interesting, humorous, and ultimately haunting account of his adventures from 1906 right up until his disappearance. Hearing the man's story and tales in his own words is fascinating and will no doubt entertain history buffs and adventure lovers like myself. This guy was the real deal and endured hardships and trials that most of us can only dream of.
Perhaps what I enjoyed most about this book is that, despite Fawcett being a hero of mine, he was also a real person who made mistakes, had quite an ego, could be a real taskmaster at times, and held some views and beliefs that I simply didn't see any sense or value in.Read more ›
