I just read a good book. I would guess that a few of you folks would also enjoy reading this book. Here are the particulars:
"Lost City of the Monkey God"
by Douglas Preston
Publication date: 2017
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing; New York
Description: It is a nonfiction book. It is about archaeology in Honduras. The book is well-written and it is fascinating to read his account of how people made many tries at finding the location of an ancient city deep in the unexplored interior of Honduras. In the end, they were successful in finding the site and then the book goes into all of the details about their encounters with venomous snakes (fer-de-lance) and horrible tropical diseases. I will say that the book was a real "page-turner".....until.....that is......I got near the end of the book......where the author got bogged down in relating all of the nit-picky details about the festering wound on his arm which refused to heal. I was tempted to end my read prematurely......but......am glad that I did not......because I was able to learn some interesting tidbits about Machu Pichu.......and......surprisingly!.....I also found out that this very same tropical disease has also been detected in the very state where I live (i.e., Oklahoma).....Yikes!
