Of all the cool, real-life adventures in world history, explorer Percy Fawcett’s epic trip to find a lost city in the Amazon is one of the very best.
Here’s the gist: British explorer Percy Fawcett believed that hidden deep within the Amazon rainforest was an ancient city, lost for the ages. Most people didn’t even believe this city existed. But if Fawcett could find it, he would be rich and famous forever. He set off on a trip that was as ambitious as it was dangerous.
That trip is the focus of a new book called The Quest for Z by best-selling author and illustrator Greg Pizzoli, in stores now. The book is filled with incredible illustrations, fun facts, cool info and much more.
Here are a few of the coolest pages.
