This was for me, a book that grabbed your attention from the get go! We've all heard stories of lost cities of gold in Africa and South America but for some reason Honduras doesn't spring to mind. Not sure why Mr. Stewart has put together a remarkable account of Theodore Mordes' 1940 expedition into the jungle of La Mosquitia. Perhaps due to his extensive research the authors' account of that expedition reads like he was there. But he also, almost 70 years later retraced the same route that Morde took to find the Lost White City. Not only one but two expeditions separated only by the rift of time. All the trials and dangers of 1940 were still there in 2008 and to read about the two expeditions side by side is fascinating.
