9780061802553: Jungleland: A Mysterious Lost City and a True Story of Deadly Adventure (P.S.)

Armed with the personal notebooks of the mysterious World War II spy Theodore Morde, an adventurer who attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler, journalist Christopher S. Stewart sets out in search of the lost White City, buried somewhere deep in the Mosquito Coast of Honduras. Stewart pieces together the whirlwind life and peculiar death of Morde, who sailed around the world five times before turning thirty, as he tries to verify Morde's claim of having discovered the "Lost City of the Monkey God."

In the tradition of The Lost City of Z and Lost in Shangri-La, Jungleland is in part a classic tale of man versus wild as well as a story of young fatherhood and a meditation on the timeless call of adventure—an epic search for answers in a place where nothing is guaranteed, least of all survival.

Review:

“A fascinating and gripping account, a true to life Indiana Jones adventure.” (Douglas Preston)

“This stunning book takes you deep into the jungles of Honduras, telling a story that explains all of Europe’s adventures on this side of the world: the quest for a lost city full of gold, a search that, in theend, reveals the treasure to be the journey itself. ” (Rich Cohen)

“A bold attempt to solve the mystery of the White City of Honduras and finish the work of a World War II spy.... a rip-snorting journey... Readers who loved ‘The Lost City of Z’ have found their next great true adventure.” (Mitchell Zuckoff)

“A tale for the ages.” (Mark Adams)

“I dare you to put this book down.” (Evan Wright)

“A great revival of an older genre, the treasure hunt, and associated adventures.” (Kirkus)

“The premise is so fantastic that if Jungleland were a novel, you could be forgiven for worrying that it might be a bit pulpy or clichéd...The fact that this is all true turns the story from one of intrigue and odyssey into one of anthropological significance as well.” (Daily Beast)

“The true story [of] Jungleland resembles nothing so much as the set-up for one of H. Rider Haggard’s old pulp adventure novels....Stewart is a crisp, lean, colorful stylist, with that essential knack: a nose for punchy, telling anecdotes and images...great fun to read.” (Laura Miller, Salon)

“[T]his is a gritty, remarkable tale of exploration and risk in a nervy trek to the edge of civilization.” (Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review))
