The Lost City of the Monkey God:

A True Story by Douglas Preston

A five-hundred year–old legend. An ancient curse. A stunning medical mystery. And a pioneering journey into the unknown heart of the world’s densest jungle. Rumors have circulated about a lost city of immense wealth hidden somewhere in the Honduran interior. Venturing into an unexplored valley ringed by steep mountains, a team of scientists—joined by best-selling author Douglas Preston—battled torrential rains, quickmud, disease-carrying insects, jaguars, and deadly snakes. Filled with colorful history, hair-raising adventure, and dramatic twists of fortune, The Lost City of the Monkey God is the absolutely true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century. And in March, prepare to discuss The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. Alaska—in all its untamed, stunningly beautiful, dangerous glory—provides the perfect backdrop for an equally daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.
