The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon is the true story of a British explorer, Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, who became obsessed with finding a lost civilization in the Brazilian jungle. Eighty years after Fawcett and his party disappeared in 1925, New Yorker staff writer David Grann used his investigative reporting skills to try to piece together what happened. He hoped to find the lost civilization that Fawcett had been obsessed with, Z, in the process.

Fawcett began his career as a military man, but he always had a keen interest in exploration. In 1900, as a young adult, he decided to take an exploration course at the Royal Geographic Society in London. He was a quick study and soon earned a certificate at the top of his class. Soon after that, Fawcett went on his first expedition to Morocco - but not before the British government enlisted him as a spy. (Exploring was the perfect cover.) It would be his only mission.
