We’ve all heard of the novel The Lost World, by Arthur Conan Doyle, but did you know this land really exists? The novel was based on Col. Percy Fawcett’s discovery, in 1908, of the Huanchaca plateau in the heart of the Amazon basin. Would you have liked to explore and map this legendary plateau? In 1980–81, Martin Litherland did just that.
He tells his story in 22 poems, a linking narrative and 41 stunning, previously unpublished colour photographs, which manifest the emotions as he and his indigenous companions tackle this unexplored and uninhabited tableland. Discover the green tunnels, footprints in the sand and giant snakes; a secret primordial world and the ultimate Shangri-La, in this remarkable compendium.
