Turn Right at Machu Picchu by Mark Adams
Book DescriptionWhat happens when an unadventurous adventure writer tries to recreate the original expedition to Machu Picchu? In 1911, Hiram Bingham III climbed the Andes in Peru and 'discovered' the famed archaeological site. While history recast Bingham as a liar and a thief, Mark Adams set out to retrace the explorer's perilous path in search of the truth; the only problem was he had written about adventure far more than he had ever actually lived it. In fact, he had never even slept in a tent. Adams' acclaimed account will thrill all as he travels through these remote and historic hills
