The Lost City of Z
The Lost City of Z A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon By Grann, David Book - 2009

Col. Percy Harrison Fawcett was the last of the great Victorian explorers, so when he and his son disappeared on a 1925 expedition to prove that a large civilization existed in the supposedly inimical Amazon, it made headlines around the world. Little-remembered today, the mystery slowly ensnared journalist David Grann, who soon discovered that he was only the latest in a long line of investigators seeking the fate of the Fawcetts and the lost city. The retelling of the adventures of Fawcett and his usually ill-fated searchers makes for a gripping tale, topped by Grann's own foray into the hostile jungle armed with the Colonel's secret notes, where he discovers that Fawcett's lost civilization may have a basis in truth.
