Summary
"Douglas Preston takes readers on an adventure deep into the Honduran jungle in this riveting, danger-filled true story about the discovery of an ancient lost civilization"--
Summary
Though he's probably better known as the co-author of the suspenseful Pendergast novels, Douglas Preston also writes thrilling nonfiction. In his latest real-life adventure tale, he gives us a compelling, high-octane account of his travels in Honduras' Mosquitia area, where he's part of a team looking for evidence of the fabled Ciudad Blanca (The White City) aka "The Lost City of the Monkey God" -- but the group has to deal with unfriendly soldiers, parasites, jaguars, snakes, insects, and more. -- Description by Dawn Towery
