A tough slog....

....reading the book. The subject matter is fascinating, although I found it a bit of a struggle to complete the book. The book's many diversions into backstory, side story, 'what is happening back home', and present (there are two 'presents', in a sense) eliminated most of the tension from the Fawcett's jungle adventures.

Fantastic Book

I included Fawcett in my book, Vanished, published in 2007. For all the people profiled in my book, I used many primary sources and then at least one good authoritative secondary source. For Fawcett, I found none that can rival Grann's book. This is the best book written on the missing explorer. Fawcett is a fantastically intersting figure and deserves to be better known in North America than he is. Grann's book brings him to life like no other I've read - I highly recommend it.
