Under The Condor S Wing Fifty Years In The South American Andes from the Author: Mac and Ginny Tschanz. "A remarkable family saga began in the early 1960s when Mac Tschanz helped establish a Department of Geology in the high Andes mountains of Bolivia. His next assignment was in Colombia where he trained geologists while mapping in the lawless Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. During nine years in South America Mac and his wife, Ginny, lived a continuous adventure in exotic surroundings. Years later, 2nd generation Tor and Dawn in nine months time trekked from Chile to Guatemala where they met Mac and Ginny at the ruins of Tikál. Another son, Michael, mounted Peruvian expeditions in which he climbed two peaks above 20,000 ft, bicycled across the Andes, and descended into Colca Canyon, the world's deepest. His daughter, Meghan, served on a mission during two summers in Costa Rica. Their observations were recorded in contemporaneous letters, journals and diaries, imparting immediacy to an amazing fifty year family saga"-- http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/noetic93 (as viewed on 8/23/2012).

A Bicycle Journey To The Bottom Of The Americas from the Author: George J. Hawkins. Remember when you were a kid and you got your first bicycle? After a few weeks of mastering the dynamics of balancing, steering, and pedaling, all at the same time hopefully, your father released his protective, steadying grip on the seat and you went wobbling off on your own. It was probably your very first taste of independence and freedom and you knew you liked that feeling very much. Few things in life have ever compared to that first solo ride. Almost 40 years after my first solo bike ride, I was able to recapture the excitement and passion of that momentous occasion when I pedaled out of Anchorage, Alaska bound for Tierra del Fuego-the very tip of South America. No matter that it was 17,500 miles distant and would take 3½ years to get there I vowed I would achieve that goal if it took the rest of my life.

The Lost City Of Z from the Author: David Grann. **NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING ROBERT PATTINSON, CHARLIE HUNNAM AND SIENNA MILLER** ‘A riveting, exciting and thoroughly compelling tale of adventure’JOHN GRISHAM The story of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, the inspiration behind Conan Doyle's The Lost World Fawcett was among the last of a legendary breed of British explorers. For years he explored the Amazon and came to believe that its jungle concealed a large, complex civilization, like El Dorado. Obsessed with its discovery, he christened it the City of Z. In 1925, Fawcett headed into the wilderness with his son Jack, vowing to make history. They vanished without a trace. For the next eighty years, hordes of explorers plunged into the jungle, trying to find evidence of Fawcett's party or Z. Some died from disease and starvation; others simply disappeared. In this spellbinding true tale of lethal obsession, David Grann retraces the footsteps of Fawcett and his followers as he unravels one of the greatest mysteries of exploration. ‘A wonderful story of a lost age of heroic exploration’ Sunday Times ‘Marvellous ... An engrossing book whose protagonist could out-think Indiana Jones’ Daily Telegraph ‘The best story in the world, told perfectly’ Evening Standard ‘A fascinating and brilliant book’ Malcolm Gladwell
