The Lost City of the Monkey God
by Douglas Preston
For five hundred years, legends have told of an ancient, lost city hidden in the Honduran rainforest-- a place so sacred that those who dared disturd it would fall ill and die.
In 2012, Douglas Preston joined a team of scientists on their quest to find the White City, climbing aboard a rickey plane whose historic flight would change everything. Using a space-age technology that could map terrain under the densest jungle canopy, that fligth revealed tanalizing evidence of not just a city but an entire lost civilization. But when the expedition finally reached the ruins, battling torrential rains and venomous snakes in the world's densest jungle, tragedy struck: Preston and others contracted a mysterious--and incurable-- disease.
The Lost City of the Monkey God is the true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century--a story of ancient curses, modern technology, a vanished culture, and a stunning medical mystery.
