Wasn't it really sad that Fawcett had to endure such poverty and loss of position after World War I? I thought it was interesting that he fought in the war, but I couldn't believe how hard it was for him to get back to the Amazon after the war.
Have you been inspired by Fawcett and are now itching to go and explore? I think this story is reinforcing my inclination to stay inside and not go into creature-infested jungle water.
I don't know about you all, but I was totally hooked by the preface. Wasn't it so good? Immediately, I was transported into the jungle with David Grann, and I could imagine myself in his shoes as he tried to follow his map despite the fact that he was lost and covered in bug bites.
