Brazilian Adventure by Peter Fleming

Book Description

""Beyond the completion of a 3,000-mile journey, mostly under amusing conditions, through a little-known part of the world, and the discovery of one new tributary to a tributary to a tributary of the Amazon, nothing of importance was achieved."" Nothing indeed. In 1932, Peter Fleming, a literary editor, traded his pen for a pistol and took off as part of the celebrated search for missing English explorer Colonel P.H. Fawcett. With meager supplies, faulty maps, and packs of rival newspapermen on their trail, Fleming and his companions marched, canoed, and hacked through 3,000 miles of wilderness and alligator-ridden rivers in search of the fate of the lost explorer. One of the great adventure stories, "Brazilian Adventure" is as fresh a story today as it was when originally published in 1933.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A unique book of exploration, which defies the canons and sets up a new standard for itself. Throughout one is conscious of sincerity, integrity but withal a gentle spoofing and poking fun at serious explorers, and at the paraphernalia, impedimenta, stage properties and backdrops which characterize most books in this field. With delicious irony and undercurrent of humor, the young author tells of the ill-considered, casually planned trip into central Brazil, in search of evidence concerning the disappearance of Colonel Fawcett. He makes mild adventures of what most writers would consider hairbreadth escapes from starvation; he minimizes the discomforts of the tropics; he paints amusing portraits of his fellow travelers, particularly the crooked director of the enterprise, Major Pingle; and yet it is all entertaining reading. For the customer who takes his escape literature with a spice of humor. Book of the Month Selection. (Kirkus Reviews)
