I read and really enjoyed David Grann's, Lost City of Z, written for an older audience. So I was happy to come across this picture book account written for a younger group. My 8 y.o. and I read this over the course of three nights. We took time out to look up some "lost cities" of the Amazon and search some of the species Fawcett encountered on his explorations there. The book focuses generally on Fawcett's explorations and less so on his own almost fanatic personality. Great read for anyone!
